I have one of these units and am trying to install windows 98 on it. I deleted the previous partition and formated the drive and installed windows 98. Before i installed windows 98 i went into BIOS and disabled the on-board audio, lan and usb. I finished the install of windows 98 and it goes to the windows 98 booting screen and it just keeps loading for ever. I restart and was able to go into safe mode but can not go into normal mode. Is there a reason why not? Anyone know? I am using the on-board video card. Would this be the reason why? The computer should be able to run windows 98 especially since i will not be using all of the accesories like usb, audio, lan, etc. What you guys think? The hardware is the lastest from HP like serial harddrive and etc. but i do not see a reason why it should not run windows 98.
