I'm dealing with a problem I can't even begin to understand. When I try to install Windows 98SE on my ThinkPad A22m, it gets to this point and then the entire laptop just...shuts off, with no warning.
I've installed a brand new, working CMOS battery, thinking this was CMOS related, but it did not help. The laptop does seem a bit warm to the touch near the CPU but nowhere near warm enough to trigger thermal shutdown. Any ideas as to what's happening here? Could it be the hard drive somehow?
