I recently formatted a pc, figuring i could make it a windows 95 machine. However, when i start it up, it asks for a boot disk. For some reason it will not take the OS in the cd drive, even when i use a special disk that is supposed to make it use the hard drive. tell me if you need the system specs

If your trying to make the system boot from the cd rom then you need to go into BIOS to set the cd drive as the first boot device. That is, if the BIOS supports that option. If the Bios does not then you can go here to download a bootdisk for the version of win95 you are using.

On second thought the win95 cd is not bootable. The win98 cd is. You will need a boot disk that provides cd drive support. Which version of win95 are you using?

win95 home addition I think. I'm not sure, though.

Q: How can I identify a non-OSR2 Windows 95 CD from an OSR2 CD?
A: An non OSR2 CD ( the earlier version of Windows 95 ) will normally have a big Microsoft Windows 95 at the bottom, a Microsoft Windows 95 logo on the left and another Microsoft logo at about 2 o'clock and some copyright information on the right. Note the date. The earlier version of Windows 95's copyright date should state 1981-1995.
An OSR2 CD should have a big Microsoft Windows 95 at the bottom, a Designed for Windows 95 logo on the left, an Includes CD Sampler with Free Games at about 11 o'clock, another Microsoft logo at 2 o'clock, and copyright information on the right. The copyright date should be 1981-1996 or later.
