Win. 98 2nd ed. install on HP Vectra VL 400 MT

By wrecht99 ·
I purchased the HP used w/o OS; had the Win 98 2nd. ed. (with code) set includes floppy and CD. The PC has its own Key with win 98 2nd ed. on the case. I did the complete clean install with a Friend that is very knowledgeable. Even use a wipe0 before install then formatted and assigned the partition. All directions were followed more then once. From the beginning. I have a problem with the first start up. It cuts out (like it were going to go off) in between start up steps. up until the "add hardware" at which point it shuts down and starts up with "running scan disk....use start...turn time. I have a working notebook with out a floppy to make a new boot or flash utility. Please help. This will be for an extensive Family Tree archive research. Very important to many not even born yet.
