    I have an Acer Acros 486 computer. The hard drive has been reformatted and I wanted to reinstall Windows 95. However, when it was reformatted it erased the dos drivers for the cd-rom so when I boot into dos it only recognizes the A drive and the hard drive. This is a problem because Windows is on cd-rom. The cd-rom is generic and old so I am having trouble finding drivers for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
