  1. Got another CD, and it's still doing that... not sure what's going on.
  2. Alright update, now it's just hanging at 100% on the "Setup is preparing the windows 98 setup wizard" part. I'm going to try another CD and see if that's the culprit.
  3. Yea, I'm doing that now, the hdd is 140gb so i'll make a 120gb partition. See if that'll work.
  4. Hi! Just to clarify, this is NOT the point in the setup where it needs the install disk. This is the point in setup where the files are on the HDD, and it's going through the "Finishing Up" process.
  5. Oh, just a note, could it be SATA? It is a SATA drive, and maybe 98 doesn't like SATA? If so, what do I do to get that working? The computer i'm using doesn't support IDE mode.
  6. Sorry for the late reply. Got a bit busy. So, the thing is, I confirmed, the computer has only 512mb of ram. The BSOD only happens when it gets to the "detecting plug and play hardware". That's it. I'm not sure what's going on. The image was the "OEM Full" image from here https://winworldpc.com/product/windows-98/98-second-edition. It boots and everything, but it can't get past that point. I'm not sure what is causing it. It's got a dual core AMD Athlon X2, and a dedicated GPU. I don't think the ram is the issue, it's DDR2, so it's old. Could there be any devices that could be interfering? Only things installed is a modem, WiFi card, SD card reader, Ethernet Port, some USB ports, and a DVD burner.
  7. I'm trying to install Windows 98 SE on a Dell Inspiron 1521 (Not optimal but the oldest thing I have). It has MS-DOS 7.1, and the computer has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 with 1gb of ram. When I get to the "Hardware Detection" part it instantly BSODs with the error "A fatal exeption 0D has occurred at F000:0000DC89". Does this have anything to do with Windows 98 not liking anything over 512MiB? What should I do? Also I think the HDD is either a 140gb or 160gb, in that range. Could this cause problems? EDIT: I'm attaching some of the log files if they're helpful. BOOTLOG.TXT SETUPLOG.TXT DETLOG.TXT
