Setup Stalls and Blue Screens

Posted on 2000-04-22
Last Modified: 2010-04-14
During win2k setup, after it goes through the "Installing Devices" usually I get a blue screen, however when I don't, it continues to "Installing Network <Components?>" then it gets to about 20% and just stops...I've let it sit for hours so this isn't a time thing....I removed my network card and my modem is USB so I'm quite confused...any suggestions?

On the Microsoft-site you find Windows 2000 Readiness Analyzer...use this first...

This will check your system to see what's wrong...

OK,I have win95,98 and 2k installed on an AMD K6-2 500 with an Epox mvp3G-M 1 meg cache written above is what I had to do,also very few controler cards are win 2k compatable so if you are using any thing like a siig or ultra card you will have to remove it first if you will disable the caches as per above instructions you should be able to get this done it will just be slower than watching grass grow,but it will work win2k runs fine after you get it installed.
email me with any specific problems at and I can walk you thru it. good luck
