Win98SE to WinME upgrade


Jun 28, 2011
I am upgrading from Win98SE to WinME. When I get to the hardware settings and plug and play detection , the system hangs. I get error: 0E:0028:C002006 and 0E: 0028: C0027562, on a blue screen, for example. I have to reboot by unpluginh the machine. I have crappy HP Pavillion 6535. I installed an ethernet card and a 2.0 usb card, 2 weeks before the upgrade. The new hardware installs never worked on Win98SE. Could this be why I'm getting the error codes, when installing WinME, due to incompatability?
