Windows 95 floppy install problem

Compaq / Compaq contura

Specs: Windows 95, 66Mhz/20MB
I tried to install win95 with floppys but when I selected installation type it said: "Cannot read the windows 95 setup disk." It always says that, no matter I do. I tried to copy the files from the floppys to the harddrive but it still won't work. What should I do?

You have all the floppies (11, I think?). Are you sure they're all good?

As jam mentions, the floppy disks have likely went to the bit-bucket. You could try reading them in explorer on another machine, and see if they would copy to another disk. If you can get them to read, back them up to something like a CD/DVD ASAP. Otherwise, you could only (legally) try to find another set on e-bay (and I think there were various versions, ranging from 13 to 24 disks)...
