I get the following message when I boot Win95. I recently installed a
new motherboard with a Cyrix 6X86 processor.
Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a
The windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refers to this device file, but
the device file no longer exists.
If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated
application using its uninstall or setup program.
If you still want to use the application associated with this device
file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file.
Press a key to continue
Can anyone shed some light on what is going on here. I have re-installed the Bios.vxd file from the Win95 Cd but I still get this message. I have also checked the registry and System.Ini for any reference to the above error message and can find no reference to it.
After getting this error message, I press a key and the system continues to boot and all runs well. It is just annoying for this hang to appear. I have to be there to continue the process or it stays this way until I intervene.
Thanks for your help.
