I have not idea what’s happened ,at first i supposed it was an hd problem but was the same using 3different hd!!!
Please help me i’m getting frustrated!!
Thanx u a lot!!
Eject any floppy disks you have in the drive.
Have you in bios detected the actual HD capacities properly.
Have you checked that your cdrom has the appropriate PIO/DMA modes?
Are you installing off a copied win98se disc, or an original?
If copy, use original, see if the copy is corrupted.
Maybe try turning off the 1.44 MB floppy drive in bios and/or disable the actual floppy controller.
See the troubleshooting information in the Microsoft Knowledgebase at Windows Err Msg: Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
i could be way off this this,…but could you be using a msdos bootdisk IE fat16 on a fat32 drive ?
if thats the case, DO NOT try to repair the errors.
Thanx guys i 'm going to try to follow ur suggestions and i will tell if solved!
Win 98 disc is an original and i haven’t any folppy disc inserted in floppy drive.
