Right i dont know if its a hardware or software problem, but i think i may be able to cancel the software.
I am trying to sort out an old computer for a friend for his kids,
Its a 80486DX cpu at 66Hz, i was given it to reformat and do a clean install as he kept getting blue screens, it was running windows ME before i formatting.
Now i cannot get and operating system to install, tried Win95/98 and ME, but when it goes for the restart to install second stage of operating system it comes to a halt with the following:
Windows Protect Error: restart computer, some times with vfat and iso error.
Only once has it gone any further and then crashes with 15mins to go with a .....32 error
what could this be, does something need replacing, at the moment he is think of buying a new motherboard and cpu, as the system checks harddrive and reports no errors is it safe to say the harddrive is still ok.
