I had to install a new Hard Drive, Seagate ST31220A, and want to use it as one drive not partitioned, I need to load win95 from cd but cannot because it appears that the CD rom is not a bootable IDE one, I have a Aopen M/Board with IDE controllers on board, BIOS is set to boot from cd but no luck. I am having to load Dos which then resets Fdisk to 504mb partitions......any ideas anyone??

Just go to a PC that runs Windows95 oem, and make a boot disk, copy format.com mscdex.exe and fdisk.exe

boot from that floppy build your partition format it with the parameter /s

remove the floppy, boot from hard disk and load the drivers that came with your CDROM drive, then you can begin loading windows 95 oem

this is the easier way
