Windows Err Msg: Error: W311US - Setup Failed!

Q103414



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11





SYMPTOMS

You may receive the following error message when you run Setup from Data Expert's original equipment manufacturer (OEM) version of Microsoft Windows 3.1:

Error: W311US
System failed!



CAUSE

As an OEM, Data Expert has exercised its right to change the method in which the Microsoft Windows setup program functions. Data Expert has changed the functionality of the setup program so that its OEM version of Windows looks specifically for the specific Data Expert computer BIOS signature. If its BIOS is not found, Data Expert Windows refuses to install.

NOTE: If you run Setup from Data Expert Windows Setup Disk 1 on a system that uses a Data Expert motherboard, you should not receive the error mentioned above.
