Oh this has me tearing my hair out!
For no reason I can see except I must have done something it did not like, now when I try to boot Win98, the boot starts, the Win98 logo appears, screen, booting with antivirus starts, goes to black screen then resets...over and over again. So I restored an earlier GHOST image that I know works fine - same result. So, I formated the drive, used a Win98 start up diskette and went to do a clean install from the Win98 CD. As soon as it got ot the point where it reboots itself during installing files, BANG! it went into the part boot, reset cycle again. I ran a diagnostic on the drive. No probs appeared. I did a scandisk, again nothin, I tried changing the drive to the other IDE channel, no change. I upgraded the bios successfully, no change. I tried formatting again and then restoring an image from GHOST, no change. Now! the XP system on another drive works fine before BIOS flashing and after. Must be something very simple, but now I know that I know nothing. Any ideas?

Im not sure whats causing it..Have you recently cleaned inside your tower and forgot to make sure everything was tightly in place??
