I bought an Epox 7KXA motherboard, Athlon 700 CPU, and 64M of PC133. To this I added a Maxtor 20G EIDE hard drive, floppy, and CD-ROM.
The system seemed stable until installing Windows 98. I got past the first part where it runs scan disk. Then it "Prepares installation wizard", gets to 100%, and then just hangs and freezes. After dozens of attempts I finally gave up and tried installing Windows 95 and it did essentially the same thing.
What am I doing wrong? I tried enabling PNP in the bios. I also upgraded to the latest bios. I've scoured the web for hours with no solutions. PLEASE HELP I'M AT THE END OF MY ROPE
