Description:
I got a ntvdm.exe error when trying to run setup, it occurs also with the "Without installer (unzip in C:\)" version.
System is running on a Lex CV860A Motherboard (Via Samuel 2) with 512MB of RAM

I looked on internet for the same problem but no similar cases applies.

The problem happens also on another box (same hardware), with a fresh installed
windows xp pro.

From your own description:

"I got a ntvdm.exe error when trying to run setup, it occurs also
with the "Without installer (unzip in C:\)" version."

I assume this isn't a MySQL issue, the Without installer package
is just a simple zipped file, so I guess some hardware issue or
you are got corrupted packages files in the download.
