How much RAM are you allocating to it? Keep it under 512MB.

Look at this and see, whether some of that may be the case:

I didn't even consider that. You can't install Win95 on a drive formated as NTFS.

@jam
That's it !!!
One needs to have to DOS partition FAT16 or FAT32 and this partition must already exist.

I would not reccomend virualbox for running 95/98, as there are some CPU/graphics issues outstanding

NT4/2k and above are the officially supported clients for virtualbox

I find that windows 95 runs better under microft virtual PC 2004, it has less features than virtualbox but has addons for windows 95 and for me, seems to be able to run it better
