Windows 3.0 reboots during installation
I managed to score original Win3.0 disks on eBay for $11. I'm trying to install it on my Toshiba T3100 (8 MHz 286, 640k, 10 MB HDD, 720k 3.5" FDD). I have about 7 MB free disk space. The text-based portion of setup goes OK, but when it's supposed to go into the graphical portion, the machine reboots. This happened twice. At that point, WIN.COM is in the Windows directory on the disk, but it won't boot, so that's not a way to continue setup.
I tried to look up this issue, but can't find anything similar. What am I doing wrong? Incorrect device drivers selected? Bad disks? Machine not up to the task?
