But here's my problem: I'm trying to install Windows 98 SE on a virtual machine. When I run setup from the E (CD) drive, it says the following:
Please wait while Setup initializes.
Scanning system registry...
Windows Setup requires 7340032 bytes availab
The last line cuts off at a random part of the sentance, saying "Windows" at least and "Windows Setup requires 7340032 bytes available on your C: drive" at most. It then hangs and I have to reboot the virtual machine.
When I set up the virtual hard disk, I ran fdisk and reformatted. I also used the option to format for large hard disks when I used fdisk. I'm not sure whether the specs are relevant, but I gave the virtual machine 120 mb of ram and 17.5 gb of hard disk space.
If anyone has any ideas on how to solve this problem, that would be great!
