View Full Version : Installing Windows 98 on an IBM 686 PR200 CPU

Has anyone had any grief with this? I have attempted to do this a number of times, and have had no luck. After it runs Scandisk and starts to 'copy files for installation', the PC hangs. Install it with an Intel 133 CPU in the motherboard (no other changes in h/ware), and no trouble. The 686 CPU also has no problem with Windows 95b or with command prompt in Windows 98. I have been told that there was a 'patch' available, but Microsoft told me to register first, before they would help.
I would like to, but refuse to register a product I have bought, unless it works (or will at least install).

Any thoughts?
