win98se startup disk problem

When I use my Win98SE startup disk to bootup and install a new hard drive, the boot sequence hangs after doing one of the PCI bus checks. I made a new startup disk but it still does the same thing. I have an XP 3000+ cpu on  a ABIT K7D board with 1 GB 3200 DDR

Hello there !

Well there are many reasons that this is not working. I came accross very interesting problem when trying to do the same. I think there's a problem with IRQ's on this new machines and the way that Windows 98SE handles DDR memory especially when you have 1Gb or more...

take a look at this pages ... might come in handy ...

Personally I wouldn't be too much optimistic ...

Cheers ...

Bootup in Safe Mode and go to Control Panel > System > device Manager.

Check under Display Adapter, Sound and Com devices for duplicate/multiple entries.

If you find them, delete ALL and reboot letting Windows reinstall the drivers.

See if that helps.
