Set-up detection error
Hi I have just formatted the hard drive and I cant get past this Error SU-0013
I am trying to load the first Win 95 via the CD Drive.
I have been asked if I have HPFS or Windows NT file system?
Also to create an MS-DOS boot partition, and if I have a Lantastic server or Supper store compression, and to disable it before running set-up. Message:- See set-up text on set-up disk 1 or on the CD-ROM.
I have used Windows 98SE to boot as the 95 Diskette will not.
Any advice Welcome.

As a matter of interest I can load Win 95 with USB support OK. I already have that on a PC.
But my interest is in the early 95.
I bought a load of oldish Dells and I hope to load each PC with software of its time up to present Day.

Hi I thought I had created Fat 32?

I started at FDISK
Enabled large disk support.
Deleted partition logical DOS drive.
Deleted primary DOS partition.
Hit enter at what primary partition do you want to delete.
Hit enter at volume label.
Are you sure Yes Enter
Deleted primary DOS.
Escape to continue.
Chose create logical DOS drive Enter.
Create primary DOS partition Enter.
Chose to use Max primary DOS Partition Enter. Restarted PC.
Started with CD ROM support.
Proceeded with Format.
C: went from there to load up

It goes somthing like that.

Will read up on the Click Here.

Hi can anyone verify that the above format will setup a fat 32.

I have loaded win 95 with USB support onto the drive no problem.

I will remove it and put the earlier version on but need advice On how to get a DOS floppy that contains FDISK or wich version of DOS should be used.

Windows98SE was the only disk that would recognise my CD Drive.

back again I have just found a different way or a contradictory way of for mating the hard drive with FDISK.

At the point of When asked Do you wish to use the maximum available size for a primary DOS partition and make the partition active chose NO and give a 30%.

From the instructions I got of the net it says YES.
Or are they both right.

If Disc Overlay software as been used to setup the Drive in the past before you used Fdisk the it as mest up the drive. Use from click here then you can use Fdisk to setup the drive

Hi Ok tried the kill disk formatted and still the same result.

One thing I have noticed during load-up Win 95 dose not run scan disk. My other versions do.

Tried two other hard drives and still no go in same PC.

Just got my hands on a Dell Dimensions P120t for £1 it looks almost new, taking the lid of every thing shines as if it had just left the factory.

The P120t has two hard drives.
Drive O - 6.5 Gig
Drive 1 - 3.5 Gig this one looks original.
Can I chose which drive to put my choice of windows on and how do I do it. Formatted Fat 32

I tried loading same win 95 on and get the same results. Presumed this was drive 0.

Download Win98se OEM boot disc from hear, then put a floppy in the drive and Double Click on the Downloaed file to create the boot disc, click here use this disc to fdisk and create partition then Format C: choose use large disc support.

I formatted the HD with 98SEOEM but the same result. I will try Fat16. I think you have to set fixed amounts for the Fat16 correct me if I am wrong is it 33% 25% 42% or will it select its own when you Partition. I have searched the net to find out how to format Fat16 only found bits to help me.
The 95 CD is for a Dell PC as supplied with a new one. But I have two of my own when my sons had a 750Mhz PC, also an upgrade version of 95 tried them all.
I now have purchased a PC with the old version on it.
I removed the HD from that PC and tried two other HD in its place loading the different Win95s on that PC but I still get the SU-0013.
I dont want to be beaten on this so any further advice is welcome.
