When I try to instalate Windows 95 I get the message (SV0168) that there is an oparating system on my computer which can not be updated by this windows 95.

The message you're getting is due that the copy of WIN95 you're trying to install is not an UPGRADE copy, it's the full copy.

It's or format the drive and install WIN95 from this copy or get yourself the upgrade and you be able to install it over 3.11

Hope this helped, if you need more info let me know!
