Computer's OS had become damaged or corrupt, and was giving a myriad of glitches and hangs. Clean install was performed including FDISK, repartitioning, format, preinstall virusscan, run on this computer from another computer bridged to it, and then reinstallation of OS. All operations went without a hitch, but, now The following message occurs:
Standard Mode: Fault outside of MS-Dos Extender
EC=0000 CS=307 IP=3E03
AX=0080 BX=0000 CX=0002
DX=0000 SI=0180 DI=0000 BP=015A
DS=0277 ES=027F SS=027F SP=013C
Please remove any Floppy disks from your drives and press any key to restart your system.
When a key is pushed the computer reboots, but goes into a loop of showing the error message, you push a key to reboot, and it reboots to the same error message.
The machine will not boot to safe mode although I am able to get to the DOS prompt by booting with an emergency startup CD. There are no post or beep codes observed but am able to get into the bios using ESC and F1 during the unsuccessful boot employing the HD. The computer has no floppy drive, so several of the the attempts to remedy the situation have been met with limited sucess
Any help would be appreciated,
