    If you can’t get it to the desktop, the only other thing I can think of is to put the drive in another–much slower, much less ram–PC and boot it up there. Then install the NDIS patch and anything else that needs to be done with 95 up and running. Then move the drive back to the faster PC.
    I recommend you copy the msconfig files from 98 and install them so you have that feature.. There is a memory limiting option there too. If you can’t find a download for msconfig I can email the files.

    9X isn’t like newer OS’s that give a BSOD if you move a drive to another PC so that should work OK, if you have such a PC available.

  2. If you get all that set right it should boot to normal mode. Even if you get it to the desktop you'll still need 95 drivers for all the hardware and depending on the motherboard they may be hard to find.

    Before you set about restoring the Toshiba to factory settings…, have you safeguarded – as in copied – all your personal files off the system? Typically to DVD but an external hard drive too is nice(r)?

    The factory reset/restore routine will erase “all your personal files” in the process; which is why I suggest you take steps to preserve them first.

    What model Toshiba do you have?

    Why the need to go the drastic step of factory reset/restore?

    This is an earlier post here at CN; note the suggestion to instigate the reset via Windows itself:

    This one may be a better method:

    Did you “ever” make the recovery disk set which Toshiba (and other manufacturers too) advise when you first receive the computer?

    It was that CPU overclock thing that was set to 12x so I just changed it to 6.
