MSI 815E Pro (MS 6337) mobo / with onboard sound,video
128mb PC133 sdram
4.3gb Quantum Fireall 3.5 series
Win 98 SE
The system boots up fine and all looks ok in bios etc but when I try to install Win98 SE it freezes when it gets to 'copying files needed for windows setup'.
I have read a couple of posts on other sites and tried copying the needed files into a directory on the c: drive then running setup from there but the same thing happened.
I have tried different cables, a different HD, different ram, different OS's (Win2000 & XP Pro) etc but still no luck.
I even put a pci video card in with the idea to disable the onboard but it wouldn't even boot enough for me to get into the bios. Should I disable it first?
I did notice that on the boot screen is shows the HD and CDROM as ATA 33. Is that ok?
Anyone have any ideas as I have installed Win 98 on numerous occassions and never had this happen before?
Any feedback appreciated.
