I've gotten the first error, suwin caused and illegal instruction in module [email protected]:3b3b. After getting past that I get the windows protection error. After getting past that Windows will not complete loading and end up back where I started. I have been trying to install win98se. I can get as far as the first reboot when it starts giving me the 2nd message. I then get into safe mode but only to find out that it cannot dectect any hardware while in safemode. I click ok, then start getting general protection errors and get to the point of having nothing left on screen but the startup page. wh clicking the ctrl alt del buttons there is nothing in there to check. I then try to restart and don't get any further. What can I do?

win98se, I was trying to install this when I got the message. And that is the number I recieved. I was looking at it as I wrote it down. I had reformated the drive several times. I had to delete several partitions before getting to having only one. I can get as far as installing and rebooting for the first time before all the problems really begin.

could be one of about a dozen reasons but lets start with the easiest solve.

it could be caused by the onboard ant-virus being enabled in CMOS. Make sure that it is disabled, format your drive and try again. Antivirus scan options are usually found under "Startup Options" or "Advanced Options" in bios, if found set that option to DISABLED.
let us know if it works;)
