I have a friend who has an Acer machine that has English Windows 98 preinstalled. I have tried formatting and install Chinese Windows 98 instead. Only problem is that it refuses to startup all together. Any reason why that a "branded" machine refuses to let you install another type of OS? Any ideas much appreciated :)

Had a cust that tried to do that, brought a sys in Aust and tried to load Win ME from Taiwan, the bios did not support it and she had to get a bios from Taiwan that would let her run it

Thanks to all replying to this post... It apparently is something to do with the bios...
