    time to purchase a legal copy of it .
    when you formated drive you wiped the oem code off.
    most shops have win 95 lieing around for about 75 bucks

    Sorry, Gutwrench, but mark's right. If Windows 95 was on there before, you would have been able to find out the key but since you wiped it, you can no longer retrieve it. And if you don't have the key, you'll need to find one to purchase. You should be able to find it really cheap on eBay, Yahoo auctions, etc.
    I don't think Microsoft will assist you anymore with Windows 95.

    Hey People no need to go buy another!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I had the same problem at one time .
    Just call Microsoft at (425)635-7222 between 6a.m. & 6p.m.
    and tell them you lost your authenticity number and they will give you a new one.
    I did it and they gave me one.

    Thanks -- good to know, shinny1. I didn't think Microsoft was supporting Windows 95 in any way at all anymore.
