View Full Version : HP Pavilion 6318

Help! I am trying to load Win98 on a HP Pavilion 6318, with a 6gb Hard drive and 160 mb ram.
I can successfully get through the setup procedure, but when the system restarts itself and tries to set up devices, it cannot find a whole heap of .dll files and others which presumably comes from the Win98 CD.
There are about 50 of these files that it cannot find.
The destination for them is c:\windows\inf\catalog\nettrans and it looks for them in c:\windows\system\precopy although the CD is the D drive.
It still doesn't find them when I change the C to a D.
Has anybody experienced this before because I have never had this trouble when setting up Win98 on a non HP computer.

You using a recovery CD?

If not, there's your trouble.

If so, it's not working.

These are some of the files that are missing.
icmp.dll, ienpstub.dll, inetmibi.dll, msafd.dll, mswsosp.dll,, and many more which I believe should end up in c:\windows\system
and...arp.exe, ftp.exe, hosts.sam, route.exe, etc which I believe should end up in c:\windows
This is just a random sample. I am trying to set this machine up for a friend and I have found these files in these locations on my own machine.
Thanks for your interest.

Ok, icmp.dll is in the net7.cab,ienpstub.dll is in the net7.cab,msafd.dll is in the net7.cab,mswsosp.dll is also in the net7.cab.
This is the same on 98 &98SE.
inetmibi.dll is not on the 98 & 98se discs

some of the other files you metioned such as ftp.exe,route.exe, arp.exe & hosts.sam are located in the net8.cab

Perhaps your disc has a scratch or the cab file is somehow corrupt,
I would suggest borrowing a disc & trying to install windows again.
I have in stalled windows98 on a pavilion before & the only probs were the drivers, Most of the drivers can be found on the application cd.
