Windows 98 FE to SE upgrade crash

PCEM crashes when I try to upgrade Windows 98 FE to SE. Crash happens on both full retail and upgrade disks. PCEM crashes immediately after hitting next on the window that asks if I want to save the system files in case I want to uninstall SE. This crash happens weather I click yes or no. It is easy to work around, as I can install on a fresh image, but it is not intended behavior. This is a custom build, latest from source as of this comment. Built using TDM-GCC-32 Mingw32, with wx networking and sdl2. The crash is happening on the Award 430VX PCI, with max ram, a voodoo 2, S3 VIRGE, SB 16, max RAM and 75Mhz Pentium (Need a better computer). That should be everything needed to reproduce. Latest source as of 10:00 PM Nov. 11.

Was able to reproduce this on Winchip Interpreter with Virge........on an older build from 3 days ago.

Interestingly it doesn't happen with the Windows Me upgrade disc on Win98.
Doesn't seem to happen with the current tree anymore, or at least i'm not able to reproduce it again.

I tried it and it froze after clicking yes and it filled both bars to 100%. On a build made this morning.

As a side note, the retail cd works on a blank machine, so I can install it. The upgrade dialogue crashing he program is the interesting note. Will try with a fresh build this afternoon.

Quick note, it stopped for me regardless of if I decided to back up the previous install. Will post logs later when I can get them, don't currently have access to the computer I used.

And the dump files too, all the log says is 'the hard drive was accessed a lot'. I'll make sure to post mine too, will be a few more hours.
