I get the blue screen of death and error 0D followed by 051F:00000218 does anyone know what this is and what has to be done to load the os. Any help would be appreciated - thanks in advance.

Keep pressing F8 as computer starts. Then choose from list Command Prompt When it get's to C:\>type or change until it looks like this

C:\>Windows\Command\Scanreg Restore

then press enter you will get a screen with different registry backups and can restore a Old dat to before you had the problem. use Arrow key and enter to select and load

Is it an OEM W98 (not SE)? Id so click here covers a similar error.

this is a retail copy of win 98 cd and I got the same message when using win 98 se - I wonder if it is because with an AMD64 3500 this is running too fast for the prog?

Think CPU is not compatible with Win98

I have now loaded xp pro successfully and can only assume that the system did not like win98. Thanks to all for your suggestions.
