Can only open in Safe Mode (and DOS).
Tried to format in dos with format c: but c drive not recognized.
Cannot access CDRom. Both IDE controllers have a red x through the icon.
I can get to windows95 in safe mode, but of course, cannot do much from there. Tried /restore. Scanned disk etc. No problems identified.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

Thanks for your response.
In normal mode I get "Windows Protection Error. You need to Restart your computer" After ctrl-alt-del the cycle continues.

However now doing formattting and will reload everything.
My fingers are crossed.
