I am curious as to how you cleaned up the hard drive. Did you use a Windows ME enviroment to format it? Or did you use a different version of Windows?
i have tried to work my way around this. i tried making my cd rom my primary boot drive so i could try and install windows without the floopy and with the cd rom.
That sounds like the step that I would take. When you did this, did you make your CD as primary and the HD as secondary? If you didn't then try that, and make sure that your CD is in the drive when you turn it on.
If Im not mistaken, this computer originally had Windows 98 2nd ed. on it, but it could be upgraded to ME. The basic file of vga.drv is just a very basic driver for the on-board video card to get the monitor to display. Have you tried to install Win 98 2nd, then upgrade to ME, instead of going with a full install of ME?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
