You can only have one partition set as active.
1) Is the drive correctly detected by CMOS setup?
2) Do you have LBA enabled?
3) Which version of Win95 are you trying to install?

I didn't know about only having one partition activated! I activated both partitions. Also I will try installing msdos 6.0
and then try installing win95 again. These two suggestions may solve my problem,
Thanks
