Win95 Install

By qpeabody ·
I used this program to completely whip my HD clean. I then ran fdisk to repartition the hard drive. I didn't enable large disk support.

Nonetheless, I have a startup disk that I use and installed with CD-Rom support. But when I run setup, I get "Windows Setup requires 7340032 bytes available on your C: drive" and then it stops. What am not doing right? Did I miss a step somewhere? Thank You!!!

For W95 and W98, you need to format the drive after partitioning with fdisk.

If the drive is not formatted, the installer thinks the drive is full.

I highly recommend you *do* use large disk support if your computer has a disk larger than 512MB. Windows includes support for large disks resulting in more efficient use of disk space on large drives, and allowing disks over 2GB to be formatted as a single drive. Unless there is a very real reason you want to avoid using FAT-32, re-fdisk your drive with large disk support, format it, then install your OS.

Good luck...hope this helps!
