    None of these are archives; they are CD images that happen to be inside a RAR archive. Might want to change that.

    Has anyone gotten a msgsrv32 ("This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown")happening during the installation of Windows 98 Build 1619? Also when I get pass it, the installation doesn't read my cd drive. Im guessing that since I pressed the "Details" Button on the error, it shows that SYSDM.CPL's modules are invalid, which means that it probably didn't install any drivers including my cd drive. Please help!
  • nvm i got it working, all i did was remove no named devices (i only removed the network adapter) in device manager from safe mode.
  • l got stuck in the second step with beta2.1 of Windows98, what should l do?
  • my windows memphis version is 'expired"? (4.10.1351.B0)

    You need to set the bios date to 13th December 1996.

    after formatting the drive with the MS-DOS 6.22 Boot disk, it locked me out of using the machine.

    Did you switch to the win9x directory before running setup?
  • edited October 2022
    I Did, I even tried installing MS-DOS 6.22 And it still locks me out. I Guess i can only install this on Virtualbox... :angry:

    I Almost just deleted all of my Virtual Hard Drives after deleting the HDD

    I'll just try to install it on DOSbox, Last hope..
  • Anyone recieved the "ACPI CRITICAL ERROR #4005", when it's initializing after the restart?
