Setup Wizard for XP over Windows 98 Reports Fatal Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • During the setup procedure for Windows XP Home Edition over Windows 98, the setup wizard reported a fatal error (cannot proceed) with the error code of:  ERROR: 607FF58h  .  Then, while trying to run the compatibility program on the same setup disk, the program reported:  Fatal Error (cannot proceed):  ERROR:  FCFF58h .  In both instances, the software directed that I contact Microsoft for expert assistance.  Apparently, the expert assistance will cost $56.00 (first question?).  I will be pleased to receive assistance to resolve this setup error?  I have used this same procedure 2 or 3 times previous (HD crash, etc).  and I did not experience this problem with fatal errors.

  • How are you trying to do the install?  Are you doing a clean install or an upgrade?
