    I have a pentium II 200 which is running windows 95 which I recently fdisked and formated the c drive. Now I want to install the operating system so I went to the BIOS to change the boot sequence and it only has two drives listed the A and C. So I went into my CMOS setting and discovered the following:

    Hard Disks type size mode

    primary master user 2560 LBA
    primary slave none ----
    S.M. none ----
    S.S. none -----

    Question- What do I do to make the computer boot into CD ROM mode?

    No such thing as 'CD-ROM' mode. There's DOS Mode and Normal mode.

    Please see the following printable attachment on Starting From Scratch. To start from scratch with Win95 though, unlike Win98 and higher, you'd need your computer's main-board drivers (Audio and Video specifically) and its Modem drivers. To make it a lot easier I strongly suggest you re-install with Win98.

    Can you tell me, is this a branded computer, Compaq, HP etc.? If it is then I can help you find the drivers for it off the PC maker's website. If not, knowing the main board brand make and model the Board maker's website may have the drivers. As far as the modem drivers? The individual modem maker would have the drivers. Driverguide.com has many older legacy drivers for modems etc.
