To start my computer I need a start-up disk. What can I do to get
rid of the start-up disk and start my computer normal without any
disk. One of the reasons I want to fix this is because I want to install windows 95 on my pc.Can you please tell me step by step on how
to fix this? I would be very thankfull if you did.
