Hi, i am trying to install Windows 98 into a SanDisk cruzer micro 4gb. I used hp format utility to make a dos boot drive on the usb disk, then i dragged the installation files into usb disk. When it booted into the usb disk, i ran the setup and selected to install it on the usb i am using, after the reboot, it shows the looking for drivers animation, then i get the bsod, then i click enter to continue, and i get a blue box, where i can move the mouse only.

My computer

hp compaq nc6400

1gb ram

SanDisk cruzer micro 4gb

You mean that you don't get the "Start" button?

What happens if you press when booted in safe mode Ctrl+Alt+Canc?

Do you get Task Manager?

As in:

Which tasks do you see running?

Ctrl+Alt+Canc?

Eh? :unsure:

I assume specific to non-US keyboards. Should be Ctrl+Alt+Del on US ones. ;)

Yep :), my bad :blushing: , forgot to translate the "Canc" (Italian) to "Del" (English), BUT since I posted an image in which CTRL+ALT+DEL (again) is mentioned ;), you are given honoris causa the grammar police badge I received just today from submix8c:

BTW, off-topic, but after finding this I finally understand the "de La Palice" references. :w00t:

I can't access device manager because all i see is the safe mode background, and the task man thing was for jaclaz. Sorry about that. :blushing:

Edit a file named SYSTEM.CB

Add to it a section like this:

[vcache]

MaxFileCache=393216

Let's see whether this improves your Safe Mode enough for you to be able to follow RLoew's instructions.
