Win98 will install but not run
Posted on 2000-04-21
I have quite a wierd dilema. Windows 98 will copy all files during the install, reboot the first time and detect hardware... but when it reboots again (to setup control panel, time zone, etc.) the system reboots. When it reboots, it starts loading and while the "Starting Windows 98" screen is up, it reboots again (basically an infinate loop only I can terminate it with the power button). The following is the hardware that is currently in the system:
AMD K6-2 475 w/3D Now on FIC VA-503+ MB
WD 2GB HD
Diamond Stealth PCI Video card (2mb)
I also tried installing Windows 95 but it does the same thing. If I boot to a command prompt, it works fine. I just can't load the GUI (which makes the OS useless). Please help!!
Thank you VERY VERY much!!
