Windows 98 Install Problems

  [DELETED] 23:24 23 Aug 2003

Im on a Compaq Armada 1592DMT installing windows 98 and it installs, but halfway through the extra stuff (when its looking for plug and play, etc.) It restarts, and never goes back to win 98 install screen, it just freezes half way through boot. Can anyone help?

This looks as if its having trouble coping with some attached p'n'p hardware. Make sure all your internal cards are firmly in place and disconnect all external equipment to give it less to do

Boot to a Windows98 boot disk run windows setup from DOS, from the A:> prompt change to your CD drive letter then use the "setup /p a" or "/p b"
switches to limit/prompt for plug and play detection ,also remove any cards not required to boot the machine
