Please help me or email me if you know the answer or how to solve the situation. everytime I am trying to load win98 either as a new clean install or as an upgrade, after is loaded when it re-starts I always get the following error:

While initializing device combuff:
Windows protection error.

The facts are that I put a new intell mother board and a 600MHZ cirix chip.

I will highly appreciate anything you can do for me

Hi,

Can you start the system in Safe-Mode? I've experienced this problem, but never with a Cyrix processor.
I got a very similar error with an AMD K62 processor. It turned out that the problem was with a software-caching algorithm :confused: used by the processor.
So I'd recommend first seeing if there is a BIOS upgrade available which (hopefully) addresses this issue. Failing that, I'd see if this is a known Cyrix issue, and if so, see if they have a fix or patch available.

Good Luck

P.S- Other related sites have indicated that this could be an issue with power management. Try doing a general search on Google.com, just on "while initializing device" or something like that. You might come across some more possibilities.
