I have connected my new 1.2 gig IBM laptop hard drive with an adapter to my old desktop computer(133 megahertz) and have fdisked it (one primary active partition). I then formatted the c drive from my ME boot disk. When I switch to my cd rom drive and try to load Windows ME (with the /nm switch to ignore the CPU procesesor limit) it scans my harddrive successfully and then I get an error message "standard mode' fault in msdos extender" followed by two long lines of numbers. And then everything just stops and the E prompt comes back and the machine is locked up. Any ideas what I have done wrong?
I have tried copying win 95 and win me system files to the hard drive first and neither option worked. After receiving an error message regarding a compressed disk or cache I disabled external cashe and bios cashe in the bios setup and I tried to reload win98 and get the error message "standard mode: bad fault in ms-dos extender"
After moving the laptop hard drive to another newer computer it loaded fine. The only thing I can think of that would not allow me to load Windows ME on the old computer is an out of date bios on that machine.
Does the power button actually work in WinME or is that just an unconfirmed rumor? I can get a bogus 'suspend' mode after shuting down, but have to unplug to restart in 98 second edition. I'd be happy to upgrade if its true...
Also - did anyone get FLIP to work (flip the screen upside down)... a search in these forums produces conflicting results...
