Windows95 Setup question

I've a Gateway 2K 486/66 VLB 16MB machine based on a Micronics JX-30-G MB and a Phoenix BIOS(12)on which w've been unsuccesfully trying to install Win95 over DOS 6.22 & WfWG 3.11. Even under a bare-bones install (no real drivers, clean win and system) Win95 only comes up in safe mode. I'm guessing that it's either a BIOS problem or the HD driver, how about it? Any ideas of which it is, or how to diagnose it?

IMO it's in general not a good idea to
install Win95 on top of Win31.  Try
zipping the Windows tree (don't forget to
use the switches for hidden/system files)
and then doing an install of Win95.  Clean
installs tend to work better in my
experience.  Also, do this with config.sys
and autoexec.bat cleaned up as much as
possible.

Did you check the Gateway website?  It think there is some info
on the BIOS for specifically those machines.  However, I was able
to install Win95 on mine without problems...
