Can't reload driver in safe mode off of the CD-ROM. The mobo is Epox 8RDA with nVIDIA Nforce2....could this be causing the conflict as the MSI driver is also for nVidia chipset. I've read that Maxtor HDs have a hard time working on nVidia mobo for some reason!
Maybe I should just reformat the HD and start with a clean boot. Reinstall win 98 and then use it to install full version of win XP pro which is what I had in mind to start. Just wanted to get most hardware up and running in win 98. Hope it will not hang up in XP when I load XP driver which are still for the same nVIDIA video card.
Anyone have any experience whith this kind of problem and maybe an idea how to reload the video driver in safe mode on win 98. The file is around 200 mb-too much for floppy.
