Since I never got a reply to my other topic, I will create a new topic with updated information.
After I installed Windows ME, I got an error message that says "Windows Protection Error. You must restart your computer" after it said, "Please wait while setup updates your configuration files. Configuration files updated. Continuing to load Windows"
I powered off the machine several times and now every time I boot it up, immediately after the Windows ME logo, it boots to a black screen with a blinking cursor. If I power off the machine, it says "Windows did not finish loading" and asks me to put it into safe mode.
I can access safe mode with no problems at all, but if I shut it down and/or restart the machine, it goes right back to that blinking cursor.
I Googled the problem and found a few others with people booting to a black screen with a blinking cursor, but none of those results pertain to this problem immediately after installing Windows ME. All the results on Google are people who had Windows ME installed for awhile. None deal with this problem immediately after installing Windows ME.
When I am in safe mode, there are no devices in device manager with a red exclamation mark. I do need drivers for three or four devices, however; including my video card (ATI)
