Reboot Win95 - NWclient 32 bit

HURRA - HURRA !!!!!!

I have just finish a new server based installation, and believe it or not, IT WORKS.
PC reboot after copy and there is only one network card.
The question is WHY it´s working now. The only thing I have doing is reinstall win95 on server, and put Novell
32 bit client on top of that configuration. I have installed from the same Win95 CD and from the same Novell
client CD. I have also used my "old" msbatch.inf file.


Thank you to awerybody who take care of this problem.

Hallo out there!

I try to make a handfree server based installation of Win95, including Novell 32 bit client.

After copying of Win95 files to my harddisk, the PC shout automatic reboot, but it wount. It hang with black screen and the cursor on the top left corner. I have to do CTRL - ALT - DEL. Novell.support say that if I shift locwin16.dll and nwsetup.dll, this will fix the problem, but no it still dont work.

I hope someone out there can help me,

Best regard

Try step-by-step loading of the system with bootlog.txt switched on -- press F8 just in the moment when "Loading Windows'95" appears on the screen. Then you can examine the c:\bootlog.txt and look what is going on, what failed.

Hallo pprikryl

Thank you for your help, but when I try to make a automatic installation, so it is not possible to get a step-by-step with bootlog.
If I make a install. directly from CD, everything works fine. I had to be something oround my server install.
I install. Novell 32 bit client at the same time, so it is probably here the problem is.

Edited text of question
This probably wouldn't help much, but we do server based installs which are nearly hands free, and will be soon.  We use WinInstall software to run a script which installs client plus MS Office and other apps.  We use netbeui in the initial phases of the connection to the server and file copy, and switch to ip later in the process.  The machine also uses dos drivers until the first software package, which is after file copy, reboot, setup, and then reboot.  We alxo have a process to allow password retention during this process to eliminate typing in passwords at every reboot.  Hope this helps, if you need more let me know.
