I've an old laptop that I'm trying to get working. It doesn't have a CD drive and so I'm trying to load Win 95 from floppy. I can only get so far, disk 2 or 3, and it says installation can't be completed. Then I get a black screen with Invalid System Disk - press any key. I'm not a techie so would be grateful for any help!
