Abit NF7-S problems..

  robcawser 23:02 27 Jan 2004

just put together a new rig:

AMD athlon 2600+
512mb DDR 400
Abit NF7-S

and im trying to install win98. After the file tranfers, it will reset and go to the 98 boot screen which says "Preparing 98 to boot for the first time", but it just stays here. I know it hasnt crashed cos the bar at the bottom is still moving.
I suspect its to do with the HDD, as we didnt get any drivers or instruction manuals.

Any help appreciated.

how long did you wait while the progress bar was still moving?

click here says compatable with win98se

how much ram do you have? try with 512 or less.

512mb sorry.

its not so much a progress bar, just a bar that moves at the start, and its not se, its just normal 98 which we always use before upgrading to xp
