      Depending upon if his computer has high enough specs.

      And besides you can not directly upgrade from 95 to XP.

      You would have to do a complete format to install XP, since 95 is a 16/32Bit Hybrid compaired to XP's pure 32Bit.

            He has a Win98SE Upgrade CD...
            He DOES NOT have a Win95 CD...
            This is why it will not work.
            Win95 does not have to be installed but he will need a Win95 CD to put in when prompted....
            Win3.1 floppies would work in this case also...

            This is the situation...whether he's stated it here or not.

              plus I thought it only asks for a CD when its an upgrade and no previous windows is installed. (clean install) ...So if its an upgrade then it should work fine going over the old OS if it is also OEM and qualified for upgrade.

              If he doesn't have the original Win98FE CD then he can't upgrade from Win95 to 98SE.

              This is not possible without first having Win98FE already on it.

              Funny. I've never had a Win98FE CD and I was able to upgrade both windows 3.1 and windows 98 systems, as long as I had the install media for the installed OS.

              I have also encountered some CDs that would not perform an install at all if any other OS was present.

                  Huh...Usually I would kinda make sense to go from 95 to 98FE then to 98SE, but then again didn't have the 95 CD  :D

                  You can go from Win95 straight to Win98SE...it doesn't matter.
                  Matter of fact you can go from Win3.1 straight to Win98SE...

                    I got lost here.  Unless he really needs 98 like I did, I would just get xp since it can run alot of that older stuff mostly.

                      That's what I would do, but still if the specs don't meet XP's requirements then he's out of luck on that.
