this is a reinstall. I formated my c drive I do have a startup disk. everytime I try and install windows it starts and then it copies necessary files then half the screen goes black and it stops loading and restarting it dosen't do anything but the same.
I have deleted partion and repartitioned and activated it
I then installed system files to boot to c:
I can boot to c: no problem
no matter if I boot from the cd rom or if I type setup to start installation it starts then locks up.
I've been working on this with severl combinations and still no luck.
I also fdisk/mbr and made no difference.

See what happens if you copy the files to the harddisk and then run the setup from the HDD

boot to the floppy bootdisk and at the prompt make yourself a folder

A:\> C:
C:\> MD Setup

then make sure your Win98 disk is in the CD drive

C:\> copy TheCDDrviveLetter:\Win98\*.* c:\setup

when finished

c:\setup\setup
