Im in need of some desperate help here. I want to put Windows 95 onto a computer so that I can play my old DOS games without using an emulator.
So Ive build the computer and I know the components to work. I obtained a genuine copy of 95 which came with the 95 CD, the booklet with the COA and the Boot Floppy Disk.
I did an FDISK and reformatted it to FAT32.
However, I cannot, no matter what I try, get the installation process to intitialise.
The BIOS screen comes up, and then (depending on the boot sequence) I get the drive letter coming up of either the Floppy drive or the HDD (like in Command Prompt).
Ive tried to type 'install' 'setup' 'win95' the usual stuff but nothing is working, I just get the message (Bad command or file name).
Also, I cant seem to find the drive letter for my CD ROM drive. Ive been through the whole alphabet but none of them work.
It cant be my CD ROM drive because I put in a Windows 98 CD and it went straight into the installation procedure. So, I can start the installation with a 98 installation CD, but when I boot up with the 95 CD, it says 'BOOT DISK FAILURE'.
I hope I havent confused you too much.
