Erasing all files and then reinstalling windows 95
Posted on 1998-02-21
I want to start from scratch. I want to erase all the files on my laptop (Toshiba Pentium 133)and then reinstall Windows 95 from the CD (labled "For distribution only with a new PC").
I would also like to reforemat my "C" drive, before I reinstall windows -- so it will really be as if I have started from scratch -- as if I were doing a "first time" installation on a new computer. (In fact the reason I want to reinstall Windows 95 is because I want to reformat my hard disk, and, well, if I do that, Windows 95 and all my other files will be zapped. But I really must reformat my hard drive.)
I assume all the necessary DOS files are included with the install, so I guess as long as I keep the basic DOS system files I can simply to the re-install?
I've already backed up my applications and text files, so I'm ready to go.
How should I got about it? Can someone give me advice here or point me to a link with all the info.
