Hello Coote, Welcome to TSG.

I assume that this is a clean re-install, meaning that you reformatted the drive, so:

At the C:\> prompt type D: and press enter. (Assuming that D is your CDRom drive.)

Insert the Windows 95 CD in the CDRom drive.

At the D:\> prompt, type setup and press enter.

Good luck.

If you have the hard drive space, I would recommend copying the source files to a directory there first. Then install from the hard drive.

The advantage is that whenever Windows needs to find a driver, it will simply get it from the hard drive. You don't need to go fishing out your CD ROM.

Thanks for your help, but unfortunately i'm still having trouble. Trying to re-install win 95.
At the C:\> prompt i type D: and press enter. I get the massage ( Invalid drive specification )
I don't no if i have a clean re-install? Should i un-install win 95 and start over. If so can someone please run me through the un-install and re-install.
I have the win 95 CDR and MS DOS 6.2 Disk 1, 2, and 3.
Will someone be willing to help.
Thanks Coote
