Specs: Windows 95, 2.267 GHz / 1278 MB
Hi i am trying to install windows 95 on my Pentium 4 computer to get a break from all of this new WGA bullsh** Microsoft is forcing down everyone throat. I install it fine, but when i boot it it gives me a protection error and will not start. is there a patch for this?

If you can boot into safe mode, install this patch,

If you cant boot into safe mode, you may have to put it on a floppy disk and boot to it.

There's some evidence the AMD patch linked to above can help even with a P-4 but your error probably needs the NDIS patch. Check this recent thread and my # 11 there for more info:

Why not Win2000? or even 98SE?

1278MB is WAY too much RAM for Win95. Lower your RAM amount to 512MB or less.

If you are running legal Windows then what is the issue with WGA? Also, there are ways around WGA if you are legal but just annoyed with the process. If you have problems with DRM then don't use Windows Media Player.

"i just hate it all"

Translation: I have pirated software & don't know the workarounds.

If you limit Vcache in system.ini file you should still be able to use the large RAM without various error messages. The reduced cache is plenty for W95/98:

So, under the [vcache] heading in system.ini you restrict the cache to 512M by adding:

MaxFileCache=524,288

(or a little less).
