Hello.

Recently I installed a beta build of Windows ME - build 2348, also known as Developer Release 2. I set the BIOS date, the install went normally, but, after install, I'm greeted with an hourglass icon next to my cursor. I can move the mouse, but that's basically all I can do.

My VM config is:
256 MB of RAM
1 processor
4 GB IDE hard disk
IDE CD-ROM with 2348 CD image in
Floppy drive with 98 SE bootdisk image in
Auto-detect sound card
Auto-detect display
OS set on Windows Me
ACPI disabled (was enabled, but still the same issue)

Can someone help me?

I'm guessing you used VMware. You can try setting an older VM compatibility mode, like 5.x.

I'm using Player and I have no idea how to change VM compatibility mode.

Update: I managed to boot into Safe Mode and now can troubleshoot things inside the VM. I also managed to install VMware mouse drivers, but not video drivers. Also, CD drive does not work.

Again... I have no experience with 86box. I'm just tired of people saying "Use PCem" or something like that.

Well, then perhaps this is the occasion to learn how to use 86Box? You shouldn't expect that everything will be served to you on a golden plate.

Okay, I installed it on PCem. Are there any video drivers available for PCem? There are some VMware SVGA drivers I found on Rob's site, they work perfectly with almost any OS that is installed on VMware products.

Depends on the display adapter you configured in PCem.

I set the standard VGA. I tried Voodoo and 9x drivers, but it gave me the same result as standard VGA.

Well VGA is just standard 640x480 at 16 colors, you won't get anything better than that with it. Try a Trio64.

Use theS3 Trio64 or an Nvidia card.
If youre at 480p/16c with nvidia card use the 98SE drivers.

Well, I tried S3 Trio64 and some 9x/ME drivers I found. But all drivers are returning error code 20E.

If you're uncomfortable with PCem/86box, 2348 installs easily in Virtualbox using the "scitech-display-doctor-7" 32-bit true colour drivers.

The SciTech Display Doctor drivers worked. Needed to dive into the configuration to make these work on 32-bit colours, but still good. And I even used another version of SciTech Display Doctor on OS/2 earlier. Thanks!
