Ok. I am getting to the point in which I can type "dir" and then I get a directory of the E:
when you enter the setup.exe and all that I go to a screen that says "scanning system registry... Cannot create a temporary directory. If you have HPFS or NTFS installed on your hard drive, you will need to creat an MS-DOS boot partition to set up windows.
You can try "dir" or "setup.exe" over and over but it won't go past the above command.
Before we go on I want to clear some stuff I am telling you how to install 95 or 98 when this is on you can easilly upgrade to 2000. So make sure you are only using the disk I told you about and a Win95 Cd. Or a Win98 CD.
One step at a time I have to sleep. Yeah it's a pain and this problem happened to me. And no this is only for a Fat32 partition don't worry though just follow the instrutions and take it one step at a time. When we get 95 or 98 installed we can easailly perform an upgrade to Win2K!
Good that you got the disk working. Ok you skipped a step remember.
Right after the program loads type "fdisk"
Then choose option three to deleat your partition, in the end you want to deleat everything when this is done you want to choose option 1 to make a partition. When you make your partition reboot.
Now that the disk program is loaded again type "format c:" or "format c:/" Wait for it to reach 100% and say finished. Now my may search in the cd using the "cd" and "dir" commands.
Find and luanch the setup.exe like you did last time. This time it will not freeze.
