ATA100 and win98se

Win 2k seems to work fine, however 98 reboots right after I select it from dual boot menu, I did get into safe mode, installed the latest promise drivers, same problem. Sorry if this problem has been already posted, I think I saw it around these forums somewhere, but can't remember where :(

  1. Try keeping Ctrl pressed while you boot into Win98. This will bring the Startup menu.

    Otherwise, boot from a Win98 startup floppy, and then change your MSDOS.INI settings (look in the forum or other docs) so that the BootGUI switch in it is set to 0. i.e. BootGUI=0. Then try to boot it. If now it does, its not a problem with the partition FAT,etc. (yes, if your FAT has problems, this thing can occur), and now from the prompt you may try restoring registry, running scandisk,etc.

  3. Ok, didn't work, for now I erased win98, gonna try reinstalling it.

  4. Alright, it works :) Reinstall is the way to go, however the newest drivers don't work right away, I had to install the old ones from the mobo cd, and then upgrade, otherwise 98 doesn't recognise it.
