Is this a clean install or an overlay?

What was that registry error? Could be that you have developed a memory problem or other hardware error and it's still there.
You can always try an install into a clean directory - easiest way is to boot to a dos prompt (make sure you load cdrom drivers if you need them and copy deltree.exe to your boot floppy) then rename c:\windows to c:\oldwin (or whatever) and reinstall to c:\windows.

If this doesn't work out, you can always boot to a dos prompt, deltree c:\windows and rename c:\oldwin to c:\windows.

The error prompted to you may be one of the following:

1. You are trying to installs Win95 on the destinated drive which also has an Win95 OS in it. If it is the case, you have to remove the old Win 95 from that drive and try to re-install again.

2. Your Win95 installation program may be corrupted. You can re-copy another set of OS and retry again.

3. The version of OS may be only for FULL version installation , hence PC will not procced with the installation if it found a existing OS in the destinated drive. Recommanded that you backup your files , reformat the hardisk and do a clean setup.

4. Another possibilities is that maybe there's something wrong with your PC. ( It maybe your RAM , processor ,etc ) However , you can try using these command :

setup /is /im /id

I hope this will help you.
