I have a computer running windows 95 and am trying to install windows 98 second edition.

I can reformat the hard drive and start setup but after the first prompt on the blue setup screen, asking me if I wish to continue setup, I click OK and it begins but then a black box appears in the middle of the screen and everything freezes.

Does anyone have any explanation or remedy for this.

Look in the BIOS - if there is a Virus check - disable it.
