I am currently trying to install Win 98 on an old PC, but without much luck. Whenever I run setup after booting from a EBD it just restarts after it has finished checking for installed components. I have tried different CDs, different CD-ROM drives, even taking out some of the RAM in case it was conflicting (I have had this on this computer before, see my other thread) and even different hard drives. It always gives the same error in the same place.
On some hard disks, despite being recently formatted setup detects compressed volumes and if I continue it will eithr give the same message as above or say it cannot create tempory files and cannot continue.
