Hi,

I have a serious problem - I am trying to install this USB device driver on a Windows 98 SE PC

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/win98fe-usb-mass-storage-drivers.php

After installing and restarting Windows crashes before it loads with a serious error - the only option is to restart.

I have also tried safe mode and the same thing happens.

Is there anything I can do?

I think you are supposed to be installing nusb33e.exe for
windows 98 SE.

I am not sure - but the issue is how do I get the computer started again.

Once its working I am happy to just leave it as is.

Thanks

sorry for barging in, but i have a simmilar problem,
i installed nusb33e.exe, and get BSOD (on win98se) exactly when system should load.
I tryed loading in safe mode, and the mode which lets you "decide" what the OS loads,
nada.
the system still gives me BSOD.

only after the problem started i read that the os language should match to the file version...
it appears that i installed nubs33e.exe, on a Hebrew version of win98se

that causes the problem, isn't it?

is there a way to manualy remove all the files installed by this software?
(coz i can't get to anything in the os)


i'de grately appriciate any kind of help
thanks in advance.

oh
well, at least i know i'm not the only one who got into this mess...

To try and solve this issue, I installed vmware - a vitrual machine, that allows you to create isolated computer inside your own machine.

I installed win98se, Hebrew version on it, then the patch,
and again, the same BSOD.

this time i could revert to start status, but nothing helped (so far):
i tryed searching for files changed after patch installation (you can access the virtual machine HD via mapped drive), and replaced them with those before the installation - didn't work...

Someone asked for the error messge. this is it:

I get a blue screen with this message;

A fatal exception OE has occured at 0167:bff9e0fb. The current application will close.

There are then 3 options- Any key to terminate, CRL to restart loosing any data

At the bottom it says press any key to continue - if you do that you get a black screen with an arrow and nothing happens.

Any suggestions anyone?

It should really be made very clear what will happen if the OS is the wrong version - I would never have tried it if I had realised the possible consequences.

I would suggest reinstalling Windows over the top of the current installation.

There is no uninstall feature, and there is a clear disclaimer on the web site.

True, there is a clear disclaimer.
However, these kind of thing might happen to someone every once and a while, my first time actually.
Maybe to "save" others, the installation programs should check the OS language itself, in addition to the message that appears before it?

Its just, i was so desperate to make the USB work, that i installed it...

I am not grumbling about the disclaimer but there is no clear instruction to only install on English PC's with a warning about other language ones.

Anyway I am stuffed - its not worth a wipe, esp with no driver/win CD's and the PC is already on its last legs.

I'm not suggesting you wipe it, I'm suggesting installing Windows over the top of the current installation. Doing this should not require drivers, interfere with your currently installed programs, or your data.
