Okay, I need some help here. I am attempting to do a fresh install of WIN98 SE. I did a complete wipe of the physical HDD. I have tried to install the recovery cd that came with the laptop but once this was complete it just hung with the dos prompt ticking. So this is why I tried to install 98se. I have also tried to reinstall with the recovery cd again, but now this says "not enough memory", and restarts.
This is what it happens when I boot up now. Windows will install all the way until the point where it detects plug and play devices. Then I get "A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0028:FF02847B. The current application will be terminated." I've reformatted and reinstalled numerous times. Nothing. Here is my setup: Acer Aspire 3000, AMD Sempron 2800+, 512mb DDR, SiS M760GX 3D graphics.
