You need to choose a right option when you install your win95 at the first time. Otherwise, you're not able to uninstall win95 and recover win3.11.

Cutetech is right. If you not aware of uninstall, when you installed
Win95 first time, you'll not able to uninstall, unless you format
your HD. Anyway, format or uninstall, there is one thing that
must to do after uninstall (or before format): FDISK /MBR
Win95 modifies MBR (Master Boot Record) to allow its boot.
