I am trying to install win 95 for a new pc on my system.
I have formatted a 2 1/2 gig seagate hd with the disk manager software supplied. It formatted it with 2 partitions and now I can't get the computer to see the cd.
The cd seems to be connected correctly.

have you installed the cd rom right in the first place? it might be that the cdrom is not installed. check in the bootup sequence to see if the cdrom has been detected.

next is to check under control panel, system in the devices tab to see if the cdrom is present. if it is not present then windows cannot detect the cd-rom. if the cd-rom is detected then click on it and properties to see which drive letter has been assigned to it.

have you correctly installed the drivers for the cd-rom in this case? it might be that they are not installed so windows cannot detect it properly.

You need a Setup Boot Disk that came with your Windows 95 setup disks, These should have an installer to load your CD-Drivers. MSCDEX.EXE and SSCDROM.SYS are mine. Look for the disk. Or even ask your mates.

(bushhead thinks you have win95 installed, even so, it won't work that way)
