I apologize for asking this question, as I know something similiar has been answered before, but I have gone through nearly 1000 postings, and cannot find the previous resolution to this problem.  I have formatted and installed Windows 95 into my workstation.  I used the Windows 98 bootdisk so that I could load CD Rom drivers, because my Windows 95 bootdisk never seemed to do that so I could install the appropriate drivers.  I have now got Windows running, however, whenever I boot, and press ESC, I can see these two errors.  I have recently found the diskette for P5/P6 IDE drivers, and have loaded that, however, I continue to get the same errors.  I was hoping that was the diskette with the appropriate files to get rid of this problem.  

I do not have a previous DOS OS installed, Windows 95 was loaded with 98 bootdisk and so, I don't know why I need any *DOS.SYS drivers.  Who knows, I figure this has to do with the ATAPI driver (either CD or IDE hard drive)....any help very much appreciated!

aspi2dos.sys and aspi8dos.sys are real mode drivers for SCSI cdroms or other SCSI devices. Your win98 bootdisk probably loads them in case you have a SCSI cdrom. Check your config.sys and autoexec.bat files in c:\ to see if these drivers are trying to load at bootup. Type  rem in front of the lines that refer to these drivers to remark out the line (windows will then ignore them), or better yet, rename the config.sys file to config.bak and autoexec.bat to autoexec.bak. You should not need these files once win95 is installed, and they will slow down the boot process. If you need to boot the system with cdrom drivers at some future date, just rename the config.bak and autoexec.bak to their original names and then windows will read them and load the cd drivers.
