Hard Drive.

By rodrigud1 ·
I have just received a computer with 2 hard drives 730mg and an IBM 212. I formatted both and I can't to get the system running again. I took out the IBM and I have been trying to install my program (Win95) and I have been unsuccessful. I keep getting the insert disk screen, and it tells me to enter F1.

Hard Drive.

I am assuming you have Windows95 on CD? In which case the Windows 95 CD is not bootable, so you will not be able to install win95 by just inserting the CD and turning on. You need a boot floppy, best to get a win98 one as it will be able to detect you CD automatically, then you can run the windows setup program from the CD.
Also, check your BIOS to make sure that the Floppy drive is set to boot first.
Hope this helps
