Have installed win95 two times on a 486 (8 mb ram) from floppy disks, with successfull. However, this time I failed :-(
1) Format! c: and format! c: /U (also tried do format c: but got error message: Incorrect DOS version. This format was from Dos 6.22, that format! was from Dos 6.20 and I forgot the format which used at beginein came from what dos version(6.0 or 7.0))
Boot by the boot disk came from Win95.
After insert disk2, got error message: Could not decompress this setup [.CAB] file.....
2) format! c:
Copied (extracted) all files to C:/sub.
Findviru/doallfiles, all files were OK.
Setup from C:/sub and got the same error message.
3) Extract win95_02.cab and got error message: Out of memory....
Must be something hides very deep......Perhaps the hard disk was compressed? Now, I got no Dos, no Windows in the PC, can I test it is compressed or not? If it was compressed should I do something before setup Windows95?
Thank you in advance.
