This numerical error is indicative of no operating system.  First, make sure that the system can boot from a diskette.  If you do not have a bootable diskette, then you will need to make one on a different computer and try to make it a Windows 95 Computer.  remember to copy some additional files of use to the diskette like fdisk.exe and sys.com which should be in the windows\command directory of the other PC.  Your problem could be as simple as a lack of operating system files on the hard drive, or as complex as a defective hard drive.  It would be best to boot off of the diskette and see if you can even reach the hard drive using the fdisk utility.  If so, try transferring the correct system files to the hard drive using the Windows 95 sys command.  If this fails, you may need to recover the system.  I believe that this system does not have a CDROM and Diskette at the same time, so you will either need a parallel port CD Rom or to use diskettes to recover the system.

your answer is goob, but is not enought for my problem. I try to boot by diskette, but this fails.. Should be a solution but i think that is by hardware way, because the error comes by bios, and i can´t reach it too.

According to the IBM Manuals, the error code 00174 means that your system configuration is incorrect. You state that your floppy drive does not work either, and that is also an indication that your sysrem configuration is incorrect.  What you need to do is turn on your computer and immediately go into your setup program.  First make sure that your A floppy drive is the 3.5 drive, if not then make that change so that your system can use the floppy drive to boot up the computer.
