bought a used compaq at a computer show.
when trying to load windows, setup goes normal then after
it says, "installing files to run windows" it stops with
Standard Mode: Fault in MS-DOS Extender: EC=0000 CS=0053
IP=27BD AX=0501 BX=0001 CX=0000 DX=0006 ETC.........
Standard Bad Fault In MS-DOS Extender
Fault 0000 Stack Dump = 030C 0000 0070
Raw Fault Frame EC=0000 IP=2401 CS=0053 FL=3002 SP=00F2
ive already Fdisk and formatted, now ive been reading about compaq has its own proprietary
stuff or somethin. what do i need to do to get win98 to
load??? thank you for your help. and im not exactly
quick with computer lingo, so please be gentle. thx
and i went to the microsoft site, and what i gather is i need to use a /M switch or somethin for Himem.sys. or somethin about dosx.exe. id just like to know what i can do about it. thank you
