|You provided a lot of unneeded background info but little about the hardware you're working with. The vast majority of us have made the Windows transitions throughout the years - Win3.1 > Win9x > XP > Vista > Win7, etc, etc. Why are you clinging to the obsolete? I don't buy your claim about better audio with Win95; I think it's just that you're comfortable with the older OSes & don't want to change.|
Regardless, if I understand what you're asking, the old trick to get Win95 to work was to underclock the CPU to 300MHz or lower, install the AMDK6 patch, then reclock the CPU back to it's original speed again. Although the patch was originally developed for AMD K6-2/3 CPUs, it was also found to be necessary with P3s & P4s.
You've probably seen the following; if not, it may be of help:
Maybe you should consider "upgrading" to Win98 which doesn't have these problems?
EDIT: here's a thought... from what I remember, Win95 was usually able to transition from one computer to another with minimal issues. How about temporarily installing the HDD in a system with an older/slower CPU, install Win95 + the AMD patch, & then transfer the HDD into the P4 machine?
