How to boot a hard drive with win95 installed on a newer pc
Posted on 2014-03-12
We currently have a very old HP desktop that was running windows 95. Recently the computer stopped working. We are not able to locate a replacement or find parts to get it back up and running. The software that was running on this box runs the heating and cooling system for one of our buildings.
This software will only run on win95 and we do not have any install disks or files. The company that originally installed the software is not able to support it any longer, as it is over 12 years old.
Is there anyway that i could use the hard drive from the non working box in a newer box to run windows 95. Maybe as a virtual machine on a win7 box?
I am able to use an external hard drive case to access the contents of the hard drive from the windows 95 box.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
