can't get the darn thing started
model: 200mhz pentium-mmx pc - put together with a lot of stuff laying
Been trying (off and on) for about a month to get this installed.
Tried to install off the CD. Right after the installaion would start i got
message saying 'could not uncompress' or 'No setup signature found' or or
'crc.error' or a host of other messages.
SOmeone suggested that even though the BIOS says I can boot off a CD (Award
Bios), I shoud try loading a driver first. I loaded DOS and installed a
driver for the CDRom. This appeared to work. I would go into DOS and run
Boot.bat from the Install dir on the CD.
Everything looked great (I even removed the DOS during partitioning), until
i tried to reboot. The system keeps rebooting. LAst msg I can make out is
'Warning - Unable to open an initial console' then another line I can't
make out then it reboots. I tried using the rescue, but I keep getting the
same results as I did before I loaded the DOS - compressing issues,
I am determined to see this through. I need a little help here though.
Thanks for your time.
