OSR2 Setup

I just got a copy of Win95 950b OSR2. When I run setupM, it goes through the scandisk process, then it tells me that it is loading Windows setup files. However, it then drops to the dos prompt. The setup runs in the current Win95 (950a) that I am using, but since the whole reason for doing this is to use FAT32, I need to run this in dos. I also tried this before I upgraded to Win95, and it did the same thing in both dos and Win 3.1

Current Config:
Win95 950a
P133 w/ 32MB RAM
2.1 GB WD HD (Master)
80 MB WD HD (Slave)
Matrox Myst Graphics Card

Config before Win95:
Same Hardware
Win 3.1 w/ IBM DOS 6.1

Thanks for any help.

Install the win95b as usuall, then make a startup disk.
Copy your autoexec.bat, and config.sys to a floppy and the entire windows/command section to a floppy

Now comes the fun part..

Change the bios to boot A, C
reboot using the startup disk, and push F8 to boot to the command prompt
At the C:> go to A:
FDisk from the startup disk, and answer yes to the large partion questions and make active questions.
This loads FAT32
Now reboot and format C:
Run chkdsk and check for fat size  should read 4,096  or so
Now copy Command disk, autoexec.bat and config.sys to C:
reboot and change bios to boot C, A
Reboot   use F8 and go to the command prompt
Now load your CD Rom driver
Now run the Win 995 setup program

There is a catch 22 in win95b, you have to have the new version of Fdisk to get Fat32, and you have to load win95b to get the Fdisk from the CD..

NOOOOOOO!!!! Install OSR2 (you obviously go to warez newsgroups :) and then get Partion Magic.  This lets you convert your FAT16 drives to FAT32 drives without formating them!! Have Fun...

exler is right... do it his way....  The other is more tedious.  I have done it, works great.
