Re-Installing Windows 98

  Amazon 08:29 29 Apr 04

I have a Sony laptop, which had a catostrophic crash and I decided to re-install Win 98. I re-formated hard drive and installation went ok until final reboot, when Windows Protection Error occured saying can't find
"c:\windows\system\vmm32.vxd Restart Computer"

Restarts OK in Safe Mode, but set up not yet complete so can't find all the devices, including the floppy drive, but the missing file has been installed OK.

Any clues anybody please.

Can you format and try again? It may go through this time? Or even try an install over the current install?
