4G4A Failure to install/recognise drivers and chipset
Motherboard EP 4G4AE

Processor: Intel 2.4 GHz
Memory: 256mB PC2100

Video card: Creative Labs GeForce 256

OS: Windows 98 4-10-1998

Current woes and grief...

1. Attempt to run the 'Intel Chipset Inf Files (4.00.1009) utility from the supplied CD fails with the warning ... The Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility requires a supported chipset platform running on a supported operating system.

2. After an attempt to install a LAN card or internal modem the operating system fails to start when attempting to load NDIS.VXD

3. the only System Properties that are seemingly loaded/working are: PCI bus (two entries; one with driver loaded, the other fails to load a driver), PCI standard host CPU bridge, PCI standard ISA bridge, PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge. The entry for PCI System Management Bus fails to load a driver.

All and any solutions will be tried at this time - including using the board as a target in a hatchet throwing competition :D Even putting a newer OS will be attempted (I have SuSe LInux 8 available)

You may have to download win98 driers from Intel themselves.

Im not entirely sure if win98 is still fully suported, you might need win98SE or ME as a minimum.

To be honest an upgrade to WinXp will pay dividends on a high end P4 system. Shame to stifle brand new hardware with a 4 year old OS.

I have mine set up as a dual boot using Win 98SE and XP pro and I have had no problems. Is your Win 98 the second edition? If not that could be your problem.Also try using the integrated graphics.
The integrated graphics seem to be on par or better than my Geforce 256.
