It's likely that you have incompatible hardware, i.e old hardware that should have been thrown away years ago.

my new Pentium2 mmx it hangs after restarting my PC!!
Care to explain what that means? Does it hang after the installation program restarts your computer or after you press the reset button?

In your bois make sure you floppy is setup properly, the older versions of windows require a disk drive :)

just stops loading after the win98 logo. my Pentium2 mmx worked good in winme and in win98 in my last slot1 mainboard!

so i know it's good.. but when i installed win95 it works great!!

but i need win98 or winme! all 3 i own!! and the floppy is disable.

the dum hard drive stops when trying to update the files after i install win98 or winme.. it never done this in my other mainboards...
