    windows 95 clean install from cd rom.
    « on: July 30, 2008, 03:53:19 AM »
    I am trying to do a windows 95 clean install from CD ROM on an old system.  I Will VD133 system board.  The 95 windows version is an OEM,  I have a boot disk with a CD ROM driver.  What do I do after the system boots and I have my A prompt.

    Can you go into Advanced Boot Options?
    What prompt do you get?

    At the A: prompt type D: and hit Enter...
    Then type dir /p and hit Enter....if you see the contents of the Win 95 CD then D: is your CD drive.

    Simply type setup at the D: prompt and hit Enter and it will start.
    You may have to keep trying the above for each letter until you find the CDROM drive but the steps are the same.

    Good Luck.
