I am attempting to install windows ME onto a blank, formatted harddrive from the DOS prompt. I used my ME Boot disk to start up with CD-ROM enabled, and I access my cd drive (E:\) with my ME disk in it. When I run setup.exe from the ME disk, I preforms a scandisk check, then once the scandisk is over, i get the following error:



Standard Mode: Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
EC=0000 CS=0053 IP=2970 AX=0000 DX=1060 CX=FFF0 DX=038D
S1=03B4 DI=0001 BP=4278 DS=0000 ES=0394 SS=0048 SP=4260


any idea what that is about??

If you get any of the following error messages, remove any
memory managers (such as EMM386.exe, QEMM, or 386Max) from
your Config.sys file, and then run Setup again.

Standard Mode: Invalid DPMI return.
Standard Mode: Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
Standard Mode: Bad Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
Standard Mode: Unknown stack in fault dispatcher.
Standard Mode: Stack Overflow.

NOTE: If you still have problems, add EMM386.exe back into
your Config.sys file and exclude all ranges. For example:

device=c:\windows\emm386.exe x=A000-FFFF

If you encounter these messages or if your computer stops
responding during Setup, turn on double-buffering in
SmartDrive. Several SCSI hard drives and some ESDI drives
require double-buffering.

To turn on double buffering, add the following line to
the beginning of your Config.sys file:

device=c:\windows\smartdrv.exe /double_buffer+

where "c:\windows" is the path to your Windows directory.
