    :confused: I have copied a bootable partition to another HDD, but on the new HDD, i can only boot up in safe mode, because of a "Windows protection error." Anyone know why Win98 says soething like that? :confused:
    I have swiched Computer for the new HDD.

    Hardware in the new computer:
    Pentium III 933MHz
    3 CD-ROM
    1 HDD ( 9GB IBM DNES )
    1 FDD ( the same as in my old PC )
    Nvidia Riva 128 3D ( the same as in my old PC )
    160MB RAM ( the same as in my old PC )
    Adaptec SCSI card for HDD
    A network adapter ( the same as in my old PC )

    Hi H4N$L!

    These are the causes of Windows Protection Errors...

    If a real-mode driver and a protected-mode driver are in conflict.
    If the registry is damaged.
    If either the Win.com file or the Command.com file are infected with a virus, or if either of the files are damaged.
    If a protected-mode driver is loaded from the System.ini file and the driver is already initialized.
    If there is a physical input/output (I/O) address conflict or a random access memory (RAM) address conflict.
    If there are incorrect complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings for a built-in peripheral device (such as cache settings, CPU timing, hard disks, and so on).
    If the Plug and Play feature of the computer's basic input/output system (BIOS) is not working correctly.
    If the computer contains a malfunctioning cache or malfunctioning memory.
    If the computer's motherboard is not working properly.
    If you installed Microsoft Office 97 and you are using the Novell Client 32 software.

    So there is a lot of reasons for it.
    Follow these instructions from Microsoft and let us know how it went...

    I'll answer if the Microsoft page was helpful or not.

    I thank you for this nice list!
