    Let me clarify my question. I need to make a boot disk for Windows 95, but I have cleared my laptop's hard drive "C: format." So now I do not have Windows 95 loaded anywhere, but I have the CD, which it won't read now. Also, I can't get to a C: prompt anymore.
    HELP!!!
    I have Windows XP on my desktop computer and I don't want to load Windows 95 on there. I'm not knowledgable enough, today, to know what problems that will cause on my desktop. Can I make a boot disk straight from the Windows 95 CD?

    Your Win 95 CD or your Win 95 PC? :confused:

    To create a Win 95 boot disk, click on Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add\Remove Programs, and go to the Startup Disk tab.

    Is that what you are looking for?

    You can do it from Windows. Go an MS Dos Prompt, put a blank floppy in drive A and type: format a: /s at the Command Prompt.
