PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win 95



Hi

I have recently purchased a new system and to save costs I bought it sans operating system, as I already have a copy of Win 95.
Unfortunately, I somewhat naively thought it would be a simple matter of sticking the cd in the drive and possibly pressing enter. This is not the case.
It seems that the CD-rom drive supplied with the system has not had the drivers installed but they are on CD, leaving me in a rather amusing catch .22 situation. How does one install drivers designed to make the Cd-rom drive operate from a CD?
Answers on a postcard?

Hi,

The Windows 98 Startup Disk added cdrom support, therefore use a Win98 Startup Disk (go to www.bootdisk.com if you don't have one) and boot off it. Select with cdrom support from its boot menu. Take note of the drive letter assigned to your cdrom drive (near the end) and once at the A: prompt type the drive letter with a colon (e.g. X: - where X is the letter assigned) and hit <ENTER>. Then type 'cd win95' <ENTER> (no quotes) and run setup by typing 'setup' <ENTER> (no quotes). Setup will partition the drive (if not already done), reboot, then go through these steps again to run setup and setup will format the drive and continue with installing Windows 95.
