"load windows" Do you mean you're installing windows from CD or do you mean a normal bootup with an existing setup?

If booting from the existing setup then remove the floppy disk and reboot.

If installing anew then:

You booted up with the floppy bootdisk. It loaded some files, including cdrom drivers and leaves you at an a:\> prompt. When the cdrom drivers loaded it should have told you what drive letter the cdrom is, such as D:. So with the 95 cd in the cdrom type D:\setup and enter where D: is the cdrom drive letter specified when you booted up.

So you're doing a new install of 95? R: is the cdrom drive letter. So, with the 95 cd in the cdrom type R:\setup and enter.

You either need the 95 installation cd or 95 installation floppy disks. You can' t do it with only a bootdisk.

The bootdisk just gets things started. There's no 95 files on it.

A 95 cd should be cheap on ebay. You should get an OEM full version. Or, if you can't find one I could probably mail you a copy.

In what country or US state do you live?

It shouldn't matter if the disk was originally supplied with a dell. An OEM disk is an OEM disk no matter who supplies it. But you're probably looking at some restore disks which are specific to that particular computer.

You can post back ebay links to what you're looking at and I'll look on ebay too tomorrow and see what they're going for.

Yeah, the first one is what you need. There probably won't be many bids on it since 95 is so old.

The second link just opened to a description but nothing else.
