Ran Fdisk, Formatted, Installed Win95, and just before the Desktop,,,,error "While initializing device IOS: Windows Protection Error. You need to restart your computer."
When I restart I get the same error.
2 year old system: AMD-K6-2/500,
100Mz bus, 64Mz/PC100/DIMM, 15Gb HDD. Any body have an idea to correct this problem??

take all devices out of your system and leave only the cpu, ram and videocard and boot up again.
I am reading that you didn't finish the setup yet.
If so on the pc there are some textfiles also on the harddisk that the setup created, you can analyze these to see at what part the setup encountered the problems (i forgot the names of the setup logfiles).

success,

I did a search on ilor.com ?While initializing device IOS: Windows Protection Error. You need to restart your computer?and found a slew of articles related to this.
Here?s the links to some of the likely suspects

Windows 95 had had a few problems with the AMD K62 500. There is a patch out there in the big wide web it is just a case of finding the thing!!!!!

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/iosupd.exe
This is a Microsoft ftp site for file downloads. Download the file IOSUPD.EXE. Running this file will extract the files IOSFIX.EXE and IOSFIX.TXT. Running IOSFIX.EXE will extract the files README.TXT and RMM2UPD.EXE.

Good Luck
fred
