I have just got an old PC from work, for my daughter to learn which has had everything deleted, including the operating system (Its a pentium 2, 64Mb ram 1gig hard drive). I have a licenced copy of Win95 on CD, but the machine has no CD drive. Can I install a new CD drive without an operating system being installed?, if so, will I need the drivers to be on a floppy disc?, as nowadays, I guess they all come on CD's? Thanks for the anticipated advice as always.
Your boot disk will have the mscdex driver that works for just about any cd drive made in the past 8 years or so. Download the boot disk as recommended by Valvegrid, or make one from any Windows 98 computer via Add/Remove programs. This drive looks like a bargain at £8 click here
