View Full Version : Win98



25-10-1998, 07:55 PM
Hi there
I'm trying to install Win98 (The full version) on a friends PC for him...
He has a Hewlett Packard P166 16megs
2.5Gig (Bigfoot) Hard-Drive.
Hitachi CDR-8130 CD-Rom drive.

Windows95 was deleted before I could get to it - therefore no backup :(

It doesn't quite finish installing -
when it re-boots before it loads the system drivers it then just sits there and does nothing...

The Drive was also formatted as well...

I'm thinking either
a/ The system doesn't like fat32
or
b/ Hewlett Packard is a strange beast ??

This is the first time (for me) that Win98 has failed to install...

Any ideas please...
