By tusk ·
hi all...i'm having struggling to get a happy medium...i installed win98 SE 1st then wint NT4.0 onto seperate partions(all partions r FAT and do not exceed 2gb)..both installs went with out a hitch but when i try to instal any drivers for win 98 i get a fatal OE has occured at 0028 : C0275 OF 8 in VXD VMM 906) + 000030F8 now this occurs with my sound blaster live,NIC,TNT drivers...every time i have to restore to the basic win98 regitry from safe mode...hence a useless O/S...ideally i want a FAT 32 with NTFS but i tried that and got the same errors so i decided to do the old fashioned way and still no luck...anyone else come across this prob.? any advice/help will be appreciated..
TIA

Hi!
There's actually 2 questions here:
- the problems you're having with all win98 drivers - do they all report exactly the same address in the message ?("0028 : C0275 OF 8 in VXD VMM 906) + 000030F8") - then try and swap your memory - you might have a faulty dimm.
- You cannot have NT reading a fat32 partition. Nor you can have win9x reading an NTFS partition. If you wish to have access to all your partitions from both operating systems, then you got to use fat.(sorry! It's Microsoft here, not me ;-)
good luck
Julia

For a few bucks you can pick up a product like System Commander found at http://www.v-com.com/products/products.html and solve all your problems with no hassle. I have four OS’s installed on one box with no problems with a mix of FAT and NTFSpartitions.

I am not sure, but i remember something about WinNT Server not being able to multiboot in some sort of way. If u use Server, try Workstation instead. Otherwise, you may try PQMagic's Boot Magic as a good alternative (install Win98 with it, then install NT on a separate partition, worked here for me with 2000, NT4 and Win98 SE :)

Good luck,
