While initializing device IOS: Windows protection error
I have no drivers except my cdrom driver. Cannot start in safe mode either. I went into bootlog.txt and have no problems

Intel 850MVL motherboard
2 sticks of SyncMax 128 MB Rambus
audio built in
LAN built in
AOpen Video w/ AGP Nvidia TNT2 chipset

Any ideas? Please Help
Uhhh.. Windows 95?!? On a brand new P4 computer?!?!?!?!? That could be part of your problem. I would strongly suggest upgrading to Windows 98SE at the very least... Windows XP would be ideal. A lot of the hardware inside your computer is not supported under Windows 95, so you're wasting your time installing it.

I would suggest that you avoid all versions of Win9x and ME, and install a more recent operating system that is still supported by Microsoft. There is no more support for Win95, Win98 will be on a limited basis after June of this year. And as for WinME ... that's a terrible thing to do to a new machine.
