I'm installing Windows 95 onto a 486sx system that was running Windows 3.11 for workgroups.  During the hardware detect portion the computer locks up and has to be rebooted.  I choose "safe"  mode when prompted and it gets 1% further in the detect screen.  Then I do it again.  After hours of this, Windows 95 is installed.  But when I check the performance tab for the system it tells me that my IDE drive is forcing windows into DOS compatibility mode, degrading performance.   How do I fix this?
