WIN 98 Setup Hangs at 99% Tags: Windows Last response: February 3, 2002 10:17 AM in Windows 95/98/ME Share Sidevalve February 3, 2002 9:37:25 AM I have successfully installed a new 40GB Maxtor 7200 rpm drive & got the UDMA/100 IDE controller with it. The drive installed correctly. I am attempting to install from the full WIN98 CD and everything goes fine until it goes into "Copying Windows 98 files to your computer." It gets up to 99% and then stops. The mouse is still active, but everything else seems to be locked out. I got up to 93% the first time, but after 2 subsequent tries it will still only go to 99% Any ideas what is going on?

Possibly it's something set wrong with my cache? It was quite a trip just figuring out the BIOS settings needed for the UDMA card / 40GB Maxtor let alone the rest of this! I can't even get into safe mode with only 99% installed files. It says himem.sys is missing at the moment,,, Really appreciate the help - thanks in advance!!
