I tried to remove NT from my laptop before taking home and now all I get when I turn it on is: "No operating system exists", accompanied by a loud beep. I'm afraid I smoked the drive or something. I tried reinstalling Win95, but the system ignores it. Would replacing the hard drive and reloading WIn95 solve the problem (I have another hard drive)?

you removed the partition, fdisked, and reformatted? or is the partition still there, as it was when it had nt?

You will need to fdisk the hard drive. Then reformat using windows 95 start disk. If your laptop is capable of booting from a CD, I would try that first, and run the setup for windows 95.

As Bill Software stated you have to fdisk and remove NT's non dos partition for the NTFS partition than reformat with your win95 disk.

But before you format you should create a new dos partition with fdisk as you won't be able to format a non partitioned harddrive.
