How do I install Win95 from the CompanionCD
Posted on 1999-01-24
I have a windows 95 companion cd but I don't have the diskette (and never have as I bought this system used) that I think should be with it. I have reinstalled once but now I cannot. Previously, I partitioned and formatted the drive, format with /s, installed the cd rom driver, copied the win95 directory from the cd to the c: drive (c:\win95) then used a setup.exe from another win95 cd (the companion cd is missing a few files as compared to a standard win95 cd, including the setup.exe file) and ran setup just fine. Now this procedure is not working for me. When I enter "setup" at the dos prompt nothing happens, and I return to the dos prompt. Entering oemsetup results in a message asking for the boot disk and a restart of the computer. Any ideas?
Looking forward to your assistance.
