Windows Protection Error

By jas_long717 ·
After completely formating and running setup, for windows 95, I get an "Error Initializing IOS: Windows Protection Error You need to restart." What is the problem? It just does not make any sense?

Edit the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files and disable any references to Smartdrv.exe. To disable a line, type rem at the beginning of the line.

See linking articles if this does not resolve.
