Hi everyone,
I have just tried to reinstall win 98 se after
reformatting etc , the setup programme goes all the way to
the end, then when it shuts down and restarts I get an
error message
Invalid dynamic link call to device 3, service B. Your
windows configuration is invalid. run Windows Setup again
to correct.

This problem is documented in the Knowledge Base Art 306482
and it says the system . ini file is blank, but then says
to restart in safe mode and extract the system.ini file
from the cd, but my computer wont start in safe mode
either!
Is there something else wrong, or is there a way to
extract system.ini and install it from the command prompt
line as this is the only bit I can get to!

Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Steve

Have a look in c:\windows for a file called system.cb (this is a cleanboot system.ini file). If you find one then rename the current system.ini to system.old and system.cb to cystem.ini

c:>cd windows
dir system.*
(to see what's there)
ren system.ini system.old
copy system.cb system.ini

The problem could also be memory related (or space used by a particular card which is installed). Can you tell me more about the system?

With real mode drivers you get it using extract from x:\win98\Mini.cab on the cd.

Using real mode cd rom drivers and assuming the letter D: for the CD Rom

d:
cd D:\win98
extract Mini.cab system.ini /L c:\windows
