I am trying to setup a NexGen PF110 system. To do so, I made a clone of my IBM 5x86c-133 system, which congains Win95c and NT4. I'm using the same Promise Ultra100 ATA controller and Maxtor hard drive in both systems. After making the clone, I boot the cloned hard drive using the 5x86c system into safe mode. I open device manager and remove all hardware. Then I move the HDD into the NexGen system and boot Windows 95c. Windows redetects the hardware and all appears fine until I open Internet Explorer 5.5 (shell enhancements were not installed).
When I try to open Internet Explorer 5.5, I receive an illegal operation error: IEXPLORE executed an invalid instruction in module SHLWAPI.DLL at 0137:70bd7986. I receive the same error when I try to open Xchat, or pretty much anything internet related. Windows shared network resources work just fine though!
If I open Firefox, I get the illegal operation error: FIREFOX executed an invalid instruction in module NSPR4.DLL at 0137:601b6ca9. Opening K-Meleon gives me a similar error but with K-meleon.exe in the dialogue box.
Is the Windows networking messed up? Reinstall? Or does Windows 95c or the various afflicted programs require a clean installation? Does software compiled for i486 not work on the NexGen microarchitecture?
One other error I have now - When I opened Microsoft Office 97 Word, I received this Illegal Operation error, "SPOOL32 executed an invalid instruction in module SHLWAPI.DLL at 0137:70bd7986." MS Word seems to operate fine though. After having opened Word for the first time, I now receive this SPOOL32 error on system boot.
I'm using the IBM 10/100 ISA NIC card pictured. I'm using the same card in my 486 without issue.
I am able to run GLQUAKE just fine. I've also tested Adobe Photoshop 4.0 and 5.0 and they are fine.
