Question about E-Machines etower 500is PC Desktop
I'm trying to reinstall win 98se. setup start and say, win setup requires 'largest executable program size' to be at least 442360 bytes to run. remove floppy disk and restart and i can't go any further. also how do i get into bios.
To get into the bios most pc's want you to press the Delete key on the keyboard. As soon as you start the pc up, press every 2 seconds. Other pc's want you to press F2 or F10 & some F12. One will get you into the bios. Once into the bios go to boot.
Make sure your cdrom is listed before your hard drive. Save & restart. Put your win98se cd in the cdrom & the system should boot to it. When windows finishes make a bootable floppy disk for yourself.

Go to BIOS, find option 'Data Execution Prevention', and enable it. Moreover, enable option called 'Virtualization Technology (VT)' feature, in a case; you are trying to install Windows 8 from virtualization software like oracle or VMWare.
How to enable above option
To enter in BIOS, restart computer and on very first screen find a message like this:
'DEL to enter setup'
'Press Esc to Enter Setup'
'BIOS Configuration: F2'
'F10 to Enter Setup'
Carefully find any message on your screen and press respective key to enter in BIOS.
Once you enter in BIOS setting, go to Advanced Options and select Processor then No Execute Memory Protection, if not, then Security > Options and Select Execute Disable. Change this to 'Enable' or 'On'.
Save changes and Exit Bios Setting if you perform Windows 8 installation in a new PC, otherwise move on to next step
Enable Virtualization Technology (VT) feature
Go to BIOS setting by following above-mentioned steps. Go to Performance options. Change the Virtualization feature to 'Enable' or 'On'. Save changes and Exit BIOS setup. Proceed to next step if your system supports the security feature. This is how you can solve the issue.
