I am having such a problem with my computer.  It is a NEC Ready Series, quite old, but was working fairly well.  I re-formatted the C:/ drive, then used the 'Master Restore Diskette' and 'Product Recovery CD' as per the instruction in the manual.  Some of the information on the recovery cd must be damaged, as it does not complete it's operations, saying that some files are missing.  Then when I try to start it in Windows mode, it says....

These files are Corrupt or Missing:

Though when I check the Recovery CD in Dos Mode, it shows these files in the Directory.  Right now my computer will not start in anything but Dos Mode.  I have no idea what to do!  I tried using a different CD to re-install Windows 95 (I only have the Win 98 Upgrade, so it won't work unless the core file are already there), but it will not run the Cd's in Dos mode.  Please help me!  I just wanted to format my C drive and now all Hell has broken loose!
Thank you!:)

That it won't see the CD in DOS mode is because you need to load CDROM drivers. So go to and get a Windows 95 (or 98) bootfloppy. You do need another Windows for this to work, as the file you download is an executable image file.

Then boot the other computer up with the new bootfloppy and choose to boot with CDROM drivers. Take good note to what drive letter is attached to the CDROM drive, then simply put in the Win95 CD and type on the DOS prompt %Driveletter%:\setup {hit enter} (where %Driveletter% is the letter that the CDROM drive has. It's most probably D:)
