Installing Windows 95 on an unformatted hard-disk
Posted on 1998-10-07
My situation is this:
I have a computer with 2 3Gb partitions. I want to change this to 1 5.25Gb partition and 1 750Mb partition.
I have copied the entire contents of my hard disk onto CDs and have used fdisk to remove the old partitions and create new ones.
Now however, I am in a bit of a situation, since I have no OS I have no way to copy my files back onto the computer. How do I install Win 95 / 98 again?
I have a boot disk but it doesn't seem to work. The computer will access it, but not actually do anything. The computer starts up, displays the BIOS graphics and then some stuff about my devices. Then it says 'Verifying DMA pool data...' (or at least, I think that's what it said' and sits there.
I think that's everything that's relevant.
Please answer soon.
