OS has not to much to deal with the problem (Yes, however, if you install something else this won't happen), but the problem is the SPECIFIC software you have. And, about 98 sucking.. 98 is good, low memory usage = fast. Down side is the age, and a few more miniscule things.

To answer your question:
Is it just a general install disk, or was it from your computer manufacturer? Does the disk have any scratches, not allowing it to be read? There are a few different possibilities, as you can see. Most likely, if this happened after an install, it's a non-complete software installation.

I don't mind have 98 but XP Pro won't run on my sata, but like I asked is enermax trustable either.

Nevermind about the enermax, I'm getting an Antec True 430 watt power supply. Does anybody know how to get XP Pro working on a single SATA drive, I've still not had much luck.
