I got a lock up during install on WinME (Win2k was OK). Booting into safe mode and installing from there seemed to do the trick.

Same thing here with IDE drives. Under win2k all my IDE stuff is shown as SCSI and I get disk error in the event log. Also, SiSoft Sandra says my HDD is no faster than a plain EIDE drive. With the 4.25, I don't remember this happening and Sandra said my drive was twice as fast.

Second problem, this time Win98SE. When I install any VIA drivers, it installs the viagart.vxd from the agp33 folder. This might be because I have a Super Seven board with a K6-3+450 and the agp33 folder, I think, might be for SS7 boards. Unfortunately, the video drivers for my new ATI Radeon won't install with these. I had to manually copy the viagart.vxd from the via\agp folder (not the agp33 folder) to the Windows\System folder. Then they loaded fine. Took me two days to figure that one out.

Doesn't seem to affect my G400. The 6.2 drivers work under either viagart.vxd.
