A friend has given me her computer to try and do something with, there is no operating system on it at all, it used to run windows 95 but it has been completly deleted.
How do i put windows 95 back on it.......
i have boot discs for windows 95 and 98 and the cds
I need help right from the start as Im just new at doing this sort of thing....
If drive needs to be formatted (not a bad idea to do). Start machine with Emergency Startup disk in A: (Run FDISK from A: if partitions need to be deleted or created). At A: prompt type Format (press enter key). After format, insert Win 98 FULL version not an UPGRADE version in CD drive. From A: prompt type DPress enter key) then type DIR at the D prompt (press enter key). See if a setup.exe file is found. If so, type Setup (press enter key). Win 98 will begin to load. Follow instructions on screen. If Setup.exe can't be found on drive D: try same procedure for E: then F: Doubt if it would be beyond F:
