Hi Tony,

I'm pretty sure it is the SATA controller that is preventing you from
loading Win9x. When I was upgrading my hardware, I noticed that certain
motherboards carried a warning that Win9x would not load on them. My
guess is that it is because of the SATA controller, though others on
this list may have better information than me on this.
