Während der Installation von Windows98 bricht das Setup mit der Fehlermeldung SU00xx ab. Die Fehlermeldungen sind in der Datei setup.txt auf der Windows 98 Cd beschrieben.
Hier ein Auszug der engl. Datei:
Message SU0010, SU0012, SU0015, or SU0016
If you receive one of these messages during Setup,
see „Installing Windows 98 on a System Running
Windows NT“ and „Installing Windows 98 on a System
Running OS/2“ for more information.
If your hard disk is password-protected, Setup will
not complete successfully. You must first remove the
password protection. For more information, see your
To set up Windows 98, your startup drive must be
an MS-DOS boot partition. If your startup drive is
formatted as HPFS or NTFS, you must create an MS-DOS
boot partition before running Setup. For more
information about creating an MS-DOS boot partition,
see your computer documentation.
You may also receive this error if you have third-party
partitioning software such as EZ drive or Disk Manager
installed. If so, reboot your system and run Setup
from an MS-DOS command prompt. For more information,
see „Running Setup from MS-DOS.“
Standard Mode Messages
If you get any of the following error messages, remove
any memory managers (such as EMM386.exe, QEMM, or 386Max)
from your Config.sys file, and then run Setup again.
Standard Mode: Invalid DPMI return.
Standard Mode: Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
Standard Mode: Bad Fault in MS-DOS Extender.
Standard Mode: Unknown stack in fault dispatcher.
Standard Mode: Stack Overflow.
NOTE: If you still have problems, add EMM386.EXE back
into your Config.sys file and exclude all ranges. For
If you encounter these messages or if your computer stops
responding during Setup, turn on double-buffering in
SmartDrive. Several SCSI hard drives and some ESDI drives
To turn on double buffering, add the following line to
the beginning of your Config.sys file:
where „c:\windows“ is the path to your Windows directory.
„Setup Could Not Back Up Your System Files“ Message
If you see this error message while Setup is saving
your system files, you may not have enough disk space,
particularly on compressed disks. Free up space on the
drive you are saving your system files on (the default
drive is C) by removing unneeded files.
Uninstall can require up to 75 MB on many systems. If
Setup is not offering you the choice of saving your
system files, you may be very low on free disk space.
„Cannot Continue on This System Configuration“
If you get this message, you may have an older,
incompatible disk partition. Before you run Setup,
you will need to back up your data and then repartition
A file or folder called Desktop exists on your computer.
Rename or move your current Desktop folder, and then
run Setup again.
Setup cannot open a required file, possibly because the
file is missing or damaged, or because your computer
does not have enough memory.
If you have already created a Startup Disk, quit Setup,
shut down your computer, insert the Startup Disk, and
then restart the computer. Then, run Setup from the
MS-DOS command prompt.
„Cannot Copy File“ Messages
Try skipping the file; it may not be essential. If Setup
does not complete successfully, or Windows 98 will not
run, quit Setup, shut down your computer, insert the
Startup Disk into the floppy drive, and restart the
computer. Then run Setup from the MS-DOS command prompt.
SU99 is a prefix that is added to all errors that Setup
does not have a specific error message for. These errors
are often caused by low conventional memory. If you have
already created a Startup Disk, quit Setup, shut down your
computer, insert the Startup Disk, and restart the computer.
Then, run Setup from the MS-DOS command prompt.
„Setup does not have enough conventional memory to check your
computers hard disks.“
„Setup could not check the hard drives on your computer.“
If you receive either of these errors, Setup was unable to
run ScanDisk to check your hard drives. This could be because
of low conventional memory or your disk contains errors that
Scandisk cannot fix when run from Setup. To work around these
errors, reboot your system to MS-DOS mode and run ScanDisk
/all. Then, run Setup again. If Setup still fails, reboot
to MS-DOS mode and run Scandisk /all /surface. This will take
a little longer, but it will ensure your hard disks are in
good shape. If, after running ScanDisk with these options,
Setup still wont continue, you should run Setup /is to bypass
NOTE: Bypassing ScanDisk is not recommened and should only be
used if you are positive your disk(s) contain no errors. If
there are still errors, Setup may fail and your system may no
EDITING THE CONFIG.SYS AND AUTOEXEC.BAT FILES
Your computers Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files tell
your computer what programs and devices to load on
startup (for example, a virus-scanner program to
Autoexec.bat file may direct your computer to automatically
load). Windows 98 Setup will not run properly with some
programs and devices. To remove or disable such a program
or device, you may need to edit the Config.sys and/or
To edit the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files:
1. In Windows 3.1 or 3.11, click File, click Run, type
Sysedit, and then press ENTER. In Windows 95, click
Start, click Run, type Sysedit, and then press ENTER.
2. In the Config.sys or Autoexec.bat dialog box, type
REM at the beginning of any line(s) that you want
3. Save changes and restart your computer.
