???? Windows 95 / hardware??
Posted on 2000-01-03
I have a very unusual problem with one of my machines.
Firstly I have a super socket 7, installed and windows 95.
I fdisked it and ive always got the impression theres something not quite right because Ive been getting funny error messages. Recently it completely went down which is fair enough. However now on more than one occasion it keeps coming up with error messages about compressed drives.
I can now get into windows however if i try to install windows 95 upgrade it says :
"Setup could not create files on your startup drive and can not setup windows you have HPFS or windows NT file system."
I know that its not a NT fileing system, however, I dont know what the HPFS part of the message is.
Ive also tried putting my HDD in another machine, it comes out with the same error.. I have a pretty upto date MAXTOR 6.4Gig GDD.
I am slightly lost to what could be causing this problem and how to reslove it and would appreciate your help....
