I recently purchased Winblows95J on my trip to Japan.
My main reason for wanting to use this OS was the need for an older type machine that will hopefully play older DOS games. I've tried DosBox on my new machine, Win2K, to no avail and I want the experience of doing the OLD and REAL way.
I have a lower end PC at home that is not being used, so I booted with SystemCommander7, from a Floppy, and formatted the HD, then attempted to install the OS...
I got the DOS error message stating that I needed to put in a bootable disk and would I so kindly hit any key! ... I thought the CD containing Win95 would be able to boot up, since hey, it's what you install the frikkin OS with!!!
Then, after some half-assed research online (for 2hrs) I realized that maybe I have to do some serious prep-work in order to install this old beastly OS. Namely, have a autoexec.bat that has a driver for the CD-ROM on it...? Is this right?
I downloaded a Win95 Boot Disk, do I need to add the CD-ROM driver executable line to the file on this disk?
If anyone knows my pain, please help me!
