My brother just built my Mom a new computer, and I am in charge of setting up the software for it, as my Mom wants to duel-boot 98SE and XP. XP and 98 are both installed at this point, and I'm trying to get the drivers working for 98. Unfortunatly, the following error appears in the DOS prompt during startup before the gui appears after I installed the sound driver.
VORTEX ERROR #6: SOUND BLASTER EMULATION DISABLED IN WINDOWS, DRIVER NOT LOADED
After this occures, the gui boots, but before the start menu appears, a dialogue box comes up displaying the following text:
Your TBS Montego II adapter is not plugged into the Primary PCI bus. The MPU401, Joystick, Modem, and Sound Blaster capabilities may not work when on a Secondary PCI Bus. Please Consult your User's Manual for more details. Do you want this message displayed in the future?
Unfortunatly, we no longer have the manual, so I was hoping I could get some help here. Although I know dead nothing about hardware, the phrase "plugged in" suggests to me that this is a hardware problem. My brother insists this is not so, and he actually got quite angry when I suggested that he might not have put the computer together properly. He refused to even look at the error, so it looks like I'm on my own.
Be it a hardware or software problem, my Mom needs her Sound Blaster emulation to work because she plays several DOS games (hence the reason for the duel-boot in the first place). Any help is great appreciated. :)
