I built a new computer using an Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless m/b
and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400 + AM2 Black Edition CPU.
The problem I have is that I cannot install W98SE ( I want to start with this o/s and later upgrade to XP )
I did this many times in the past whenever I formatted my hard drive.
Below is the procedure and the results I got.
1) Start computer with W98SE boot floppy.
2) Start computer with CD-ROM support yes
3) PCI bus scan complete
4) Message :Diagnostic tools loaded to drive D
5) Message: Drive E = Driver MSCD001 unit0
6) Changes to A prompt.
7) C: type dir Result: Message Invalid media type reading drive c
d: type dir Result: Message Volume in drive D is MS-Ramdrive
e: type dir Result: Message Volume in drive E is Win98
From E prompt I type setup and hit Enter
Message pops up:
Please wait while Setup initializes
Scanning system registry
Windows Set up requires 734003
No further actions except a flashing bar under the messages...After waiting for 20 min
I turned the computer off.
9) At A prompt:
A large message appears,beginning with "Your computer has a disk larger than 512MB etc etc
At the end:
Do you wish to enable large disk support ( y/n) I chose yes and got following message:
1) Create DOD partition or Logical DOS Drive
2) Set active partition
3) Delete partition or Logical DOS Drive
4) Display partition info
As I am not sure what to do I selected 4)
Current fixed disk drive: 1
Partition Status Type VolumeLabel Mbyte System

I wonder if anybody could let me know what is wrong.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
