WIN98SE and INTEL mobo D865GVHZ compatability

by DGUND / April 21, 2011 1:58 PM PDT

Has any body been able to get 98SE running on the Intel D865GVHZ mobo without the shutdown problem? I format the drive, load WIN98SE, and then I load the Intel mobo software. 98SE starts and shuts down just fine until I attempt to install the LAN SW. Then the shut down freeze starts up. The only way I can get back to normal operation is to format the HD and repeat the process. I have tried the MS Shutdown updates with out sucess. No success with the "unoffical update" either. I would appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

Thanks for your interest. I bought the mobo used from a discount house. It came with a CD which holds the drivers. I don't know the date of the driver CD vs the date of the "latest" drivers on the Intel website. I also have a copy of the website drivers. A thought occurred that perhaps WIN98SE already has drivers for the LAN function and the Intel driver, when loaded causes a conflict. So I am trying now, on my roughly 24th clean boot install of 98SE, to see if the LAN function will work without having to install the INTEL driver. BTW, the game I am playing is to see if I can get 98SE fully functional without either a start up or shut down problem.

This, like any other hobby or game, needs no reason. I just enjoy the problem and would like to solve it.
