The problem is that I have to run complex programs over Netware in DOS, that is only compatible with Win9x.
My problem is regarding installing the Windows98, I get a bluescreen in the en phase of the install, during detection and installation of plugnplay devices. I get a Windows bluescreen, and I have to pull the power cord to shut it down. This happens every time, and I cant get further with my install. Any suggestions?

Since you're having problems, I would upgrade the BIOS from http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/hpcpqnk/us
even though that's a WINXP section.
Then I would turn off 'Plug and Play O/S' in the BIOS. This should force the motherboard/BIOS to do most of the hardware configuration, leaving very little for WIN98 (which is very old relative to the hardware)to do in that respect.
If that doesn't help, let us know.
Also, if the bluescreen contains information, please post it here. Thanks.

a small update.
The Bluescreen error message says: - this is in norwegian so it wont make any sence to you. The error code unless is: 0028:FF02CB3B (this is the first one) Now i should press ctrl-alt-del and then the machine freeze. Now i can see that it freezes on the ACPI Embedded controller setup.
I downloaded the new BIOS wich is the same that i had. Where do i disable PnP? Cannot find it. Sorry.

A fatal exception XY has occurred at xxxx:xxxxxxxx
You have given us the xxxx:xxxxxxxx but not the XY which is the critical component.
If you have the XY then you can use
to find out what it is complaining about.

Anyway, I found a solution for the problem. I'll make it public on http://www.adegn.dk
Have a look - and tell me if it worked.

The fault is: 0e - I found the error on Microsoft's support pages, but it did'nt help. Still stops at the acpi installation. Even though i told it to skip that part.
Davs Anders. I did'nt find the page you specified on your homepage. I'd be glad to have a look at your tip.

Can you send me the files that you attached on your page ?
I tryed download but i can`t acess to the files.

The only file in that folder is CALATLOG3.CAB so I tried deleting that instead but this did not solve the issue.
Actually SETUP hangs with BSOD during setup of plug and play devices and my FATAL EXCEPTION OE occurs at 0028:FF02847B... usually, sometimes it is 0028:FF01015B, sometimes 0028:FF131BB, and often FATAL EXCEPTION 06 at 00CE:0000003C. I even had FATAL EXCEPTION 0D once. As you can see I have been at this for a while with no luck.
Maybe I should ask HP for a full-blown BIOS setup disk that lets me disable USB2.0?

Also a question for Roger, how do you manage to turn off plug and play detection in BIOS? HP seems to only have given customers a trimmed down version of BIOS setup that does not allow us to disable Plug and Play (or disable USB2.0 either).

Of course now device mananger shows a "yellow bang" re ACPI and installing the driver Anders kindly provides results in
"ALi 101 Power Management Controller Properties...
Windows could not load the driver for this device because the computer is reporting two ACPI.SYS bus types. (Code 2.)
Contact your computer manufacturer to get an updated BIOS for your computer."

when i add the driver for the ali7101, all other devices are found, but when it starts to reboot, it fails again, and windows disabled the acpi-controller. And all devices are gone again.
is there someone out there with a working ec.sys? I've tried the millenium version, but that one gives the same problem.
Anyone has another hint for me?

removing ec.sys and base5.cab helped to finish the setup of win98se or win me.
when i add the driver for the ali7101,other devices are found,only standaard display
i hope some one can help me

At this point my only remaining problems are that I need to keep the Firewire and the 3rd USB (the USB2.0) controller devices disabled, else Windows hangs/spontenously reboots when starting. Even the VIA driver that Anders gives a link to doesn't solve this.
Have you people managed to have Firewire and the USB2.0 device up?
04-11-2004 01:41 PM
- no ACPI support at all, which -I presume- is to be expected: this means no power off when the Windows is shut down, display brightness control keys don't work etc.
- machine resets itself whenever I try enabling either of the IEEE1394 (Firewire) or USB 2.0 devices in the device manager (even with the proper VIA USB driver installed). So I have to keep both disabled
- more annoying: infrared device is not detected at all. I've tried numerous forced installation with no success. Since the .INF file in the ALi IR driver has the device path as a ACPI-something or PNP-something instead of a physical path (PCI\VEN_xxx ...) this is not quite a surprise
(Actually I have a dual boot config with W2K Pro installed to, and W2K doesn't detect it either, which is even more annoying. Yes I've flashed the latest BIOS)
What's the situation on your own machine regarding these points?
08-23-2004 03:06 PM
It is bound to be similar to my nx9010.
ATi won't help you because the graphics chip has been modified by HP, and HP won't help you because they only support XP & 2000. i spent about 40 hours trying. i am very tempted to by a locally built non-corporate laptop in future because of these limitations and also because HP quality control and service is laughable.
08-23-2004 04:32 PM
I'm left with the other remaining problems:
- no ACPI, thus no self power-off, no power management at all and more annoyingly no display brightness control (too dark for my eyes when running on batteries)
- no Firewire (IEEE 1394) port (disabled because it crashes Windows)
- no USB 2.0 port (same)
Apart from that, my W98SE installation is stable, with all display modes & acceleration on, sound, LAN & built-modem working.
I've found the needed drivers here and there.
The web page mentioned in a posting above definitely is *the* place to start. It has links to all (or almost all) drivers.
I can give links to the ones I use, or send them upon request.

I have exactly the same problem with my Evo N1050v (blue screen with 0E fatal error during plug'n'play detection while windows 98 is installing).
I don't know if everyone has solved their problems, but I know that Alain Fauconnet has a working installation.
The Ander's site is down so, I'll very happy if you could help me to make my installation of win 98se working (sorry for my bad english...).
Thank's in advance.
