there you need to format your c drive from dos before you can install win 95 again

type this

format c:

then it will come up with a message saying do you want to format c: drive press y then it will format the drive

To be absolutely sure you sure creat a new MBR record, to do this you have to use the MS Fdisk.


c: Fdisk
C: format c:/u

Fdisk will ask you the size of the partition you will want to use, perhaps for win95 use the total hdd space.. You will then have to re-boot and format the HDD see above command.

Hope you don't think im rude to ask but why do you want to run W95 as this is not a USB aware OS.

Yes, I just needed to format......i must remember format c:.........:)....Gold,.this old pc is so slow that it can only handle win95, ..100Mzh..32 mb ram , 1 mb video adaptor! was a gift from my son in law, so it's fast enough for me thanks
