|Hi all, trying to load up windows 98se. Have tried numerous hard drives and all have the same problem. I have partitioned the hard drive and formatted it. When I try to load win98, it performs a series of scans and says that hard drive is not compatible with windows. I have gone back and checked via 'fdisk'. sometimes format is unknown, sometimes it is fat 32. I have tried to load setup from A:prompt by typing D: and then setup.exe/is I have done this a few times and generally it stalls. It is does not stall, the computer starts bleeping and I get half a screen of A, E's and hearts etc. It is an old computer but I did manage to load it on a previous hard drive successfully until it went click click and that was the end of it.|
The motherboard is chaintech CT-6BTA3. The CPU is pentium 3 450 MHz and I have 128MB ram but can add more. The hardrive currently installed is 20 Gig, most of which is available.
I think I have tried everything but am open to all suggestions. Thanks Ian
