Re: problem in install winxp

Your upgrade options
If you want to upgrade your system to Windows XP, the first thing you need to do is verify that it meets the system requirements for the newer operating system.
You will need:

  • Windows 98 or later version of Microsoft Windows operating system.
  • At least a 233Mhz processor. Any manufacturer (AMD, Intel, IBM, VIA, etc.) will do.
  • At least 128MB of system memory.
  • 1.5 Gigabytes of free hard drive space (note that you should have at least 3 gigabytes if you want to do any meaningful work with your system after the upgrade).
  • A CD-Rom or CD/RW drive.
  • Mouse and keyboard (either USB or PS/2).
  • A video adaptor and monitor capable of displaying 800x600 resolution. If you are not sure about this, change the resolution within Windows 98 by right clicking on an empty area of the desktop and selecting 'properties' then going to the 'settings' tab. The resolution slider is at the bottom left. Set it to '800x600' and click 'apply.' If your screen is still legible, you are fine. If the 800x600 option is unavailable, you may need to upgrade your video adaptor before upgrading Windows.
Note that if the screen becomes scrambled, blank or unreadable, you will probably need a new monitor as your current one cannot handle the required resolution. If your system meets the minimum requirements for Windows XP, it's time to find out which version of the operating system you can upgrade to.

Run only win 98.get's blue screen when trying to install win xp,vista on win7

you get this message when there is some hardware which is incompatible or fails / crashes during the installation of OS since you have tried a different hard disk already it cannot be that so try with a different Ram or update bios / replace motherboard.

I had vista and was installing windows 7 and got to the network part of the install and the system went to resart and it went to a black screen with a fashing curser and now i can not access anything on my...

guess u were trying to install Win7 over does not work that way....Win7 need to be a clean install...that must be installed in a new partition after doing a full low level you will have dual boot at start up...and u chose what u want vista or Win7 to work with for that specific session....
Dual boot helps in many ways...
1 - it helps file management better
2 - it helps to boot from one OS in case the other gives trouble
3 - virus attack are removed from either OS
etc etc

the best way to getback you system is to
1 download KILLDISK (DOS) utility program, get the DOS version
2 copy it on to a CD
3 get hold of a Win98 CD (bootable)
4 boot from Win98 cd, dont chose to install Win98,
5 press ESC and let Win98 quit installing, it will lead to a drive letter of you CDROM (say D or E as the case may be)
6 insert the CD that has the KILLDISK DOS utility
7 Run the program by typing KILLDISK at the CD drive letter prompt.
8 Read all the options available there...and kill the drive in which you had VistaOS/Win7 (C)...this will make all you C: drive sectors to "0"
i.e. it will wipe your C: drive clean and u can start with a clean slate....
if u r not concerned with the data in you disk...wipe all drives and disks in the PC....a 20GB disk will take aprox 1 hr to finish

for all this u must have the BIOS enabled to boot from CDROM drive...

once killdisk has finished doing the wiping process....
insert the Vista or Xp cd and install the partition option make 3 or more partitions....C, D, E of at least 30 GB min for Win7 will take aprox 18 GB....
in C: drive install Vista or XP as the case may be.....
once done....let the system boot and let it load Vista or XP
once in Desktop you can insert the Win7 cd and install it on the D or E: drive....the CDROM drive letter will change accordingly....when you make the be carefull to

let me know....

I can't load Windows XP. Get this error with BLUE SCREEN of DEATH IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL I had windows 7 on it but not all of my devices would work. Win-7 loaded with no problem . So I put XP in format and...

Good day!That error used to be a non compatible with the hardware.I don't know this board,but i'll based my idea on your trouble..Mostly new hardwares today don't accept XP OS..Try to look the Motherboard's features..see if it is compatible with XP..

Ask me if you still don't get what I mean..

Cant we install multiple OS if i install multiple OS only the new OS will be booted the recent OS will be gone

that is because you are installing over the old one or simply upgrading the old OS, if you want a "multiboot" system each OS has to have its own directory on the drive, IE windows vista installed to c:\winvista and windows XP installed to c:\winxp your c:\boot.ini file which is where boot information is stored should update itself automatically, i do not suggest messing around in this file if you do not know exactly what you are doing as you could render the system unbootable

I want install windows98 with xp in a computer

if you know the installation of winxp and win98 then it is possible to create a system with mercury board with 98 and xp.
firstly you install win xp in your computer. it's automatically located in c drive. then you intall win 98 custom install and then choose the installation directory of another drive like d. you use any boot manager to boot the pc with win98 and winxp. i don't tell you the installation process step by step. so don't mind.
thanking you

Frequent Computer Crash

I think that you are mistaken something, I could'n find pvm900 at viaarena, no results at all.

If you use SP2 upgrade pack...well don't, some old peripherials refuse to work with the upgrade pack, instead install from full OEM cd or stick to SP1, I have some customers that still work with win98 and xp SP1 very well.

Try this: first update your DirectX software from microsoft, link:

Hope you are a genuine windows user because you need to be to get it, download and install.
If it did not solve the problem...enter windows in "safe mode" (F8 while loading computer), press "yes" to the question asked,

start-->control panel-->system-->hardware-->device manager-->open the + at the "display adapters" right click over the display and choose uninstall, do the same at "sound,video and mult..."
log off while shutting down the computer, turn on, windows will prompt for the device driver (once for display and once for sound), point to place where the display or sound card drivers are, if there are not recognized as valid drivers, maybe they are not compatible with OS, search for compatible soft at

Format a corrupt system without 98 bootable


Basically yes. You need to remove the HD from the PC without any bootable devices and install it as a slave to a second PC preferably also Win98.
You can then proceed to format the HD (as FAT32) of the 1st PC on the 2nd PC. Sys that HD to transfer system files and make it active. To facilitate installation of the OS, create a folder on that HD and copy the Win98SE installer files into it. Remove that HD from the 2nd PC and reinstall on the 1st PC. Power and it will boot into Dos.  Go inside the folder where the OS installers are and run "setup".

Alternately, you can just clone the HD of the 2nd PC to the corrupt HD of the 1st PC after format  /s. Just make sure that you still have the Win98SE installers copied to the corrupt HD.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
