I recently changed the HDD in a HP Omnibook 2100 laptop to a Fujitsu MHM2100AT 10gb HDD, and installed Win98se and drivers, other apps on it and gave it back to the surveyor it belonged to working perfectly.
have now received it back, completely trashed, surveyor said that he got an error on boot up saying Windows couldn't initialise VKD, and wouldn't load windows in either normal mode or safe mode.
then it stopped booting altogether, just gave a black screen after the post check.
I managed to get it to boot via a windows98se boot disk obtained from www.bootdisk.com
and ran scandisk on the C: drive, it crashed after 1% completed.
so thought ok, format the thing, that failed after 1% completed saying not ready.
so went to fujitsu, and downloaded their Disk Manager Disk go software for preparing the HDD.
ran that and it formatted the HDD ready for win98se.
then booted the laptop with the win98se cd, and it gets to system configuration, it then gave an error message about regsvr32.exe and stopped, so i rebooted, and it came up with Windows couldn't initialise VKD.
I managed to install Windows NT4 workstation on the laptop with no problems, however our surveyor does not want windows NT4 on his machine as some apps he is using won't work on it.
any ideas how to get Win98SE on this laptop?
