    In the Windows 95 OSR2.x days, obviously you'd have little flexibility in terms of supplied hardware, preinstalled bloatware (though not nearly as bad as the XP+ era; you could get Office if you got a high-end or business system) and only obtaining a "restore CD" or a companion CD lacking several setup files instead of the real Windows CD (big OEMs mostly).

    Then of course hardware advanced really quickly, going from a config of 200 MHz/32 MB/2 GB in 1996 to 1 GHz/256 MB/20 GB in 2000. Your decent 95 OSR2 PC would struggle with the newfangled Windows 2000 unless you shelled out additional cash on new hardware.

    And video cards, don't get me started on video cards with OEM PCs. Integrated Intel graphics were around then, and if they were crappy in 2007 imagine them in 96/97. If not you'd get something like an S3 that would make most games crash when started or texture glitches on others. Not many Aptiva, Presario and Dimension-calibre PCs came with Voodoos if at all.

  • Floppy version won't fit on a regular (1.44mb) floppy disk, do you know how to fix it?

    Those are DMF disk images (1.7mb). That is a format Microsoft used to get more storage out of 3.5" high density disks. Use WinImage and a machine with a real floppy drive to write them. Note that USB floppy drives to NOT support DMF formatted disks.

  • The Windows 95 OSR2 (OEM) (ISO) option seems to be missing some files. I've just noticed this when I tried to install Windows 95 on a virtual machine and it reported a lot of missing files during the final part of the installation, plus the ISO file seems to be lighter than the one written on the file size section of the table above (382MB instead of 400MB).

  • @ItsRexie_04, are you running setup from the CD-ROM or did you copy the win95 folder to the HDD? There is a well-known bug with Windows 95 setup where the CD-ROM drivers are not loaded during the last part of setup which means that it can't find the files.

    Firstly I installed MS-DOS 7.1, then ran setup.exe from the CD-ROM. I've never modified the hard disk drive either way.

    you should copy the win95 folder to the HDD to ensure that setup can find the files during the final part.

    Why, if you can, just as I said on the OSR2.5 comments:

    During setup, no matter what ISO i use, it says "Please insert the disk labled 'Windows 95 Disk1', and then click OK." I have the disk inserted but when I click OK it says "The File [insert file].dll could not be found on 'Windows 95 Disk1'". I click skip on all of them and the next time it reboots, it won't start up because an important file is missing.

    Just copy all the cabinet files in the /WIN95 directory to a folder on the hard disk. When it throws that error, just change the directory to your folder with the cabinet files on the hard disk and hit "OK"!

    Install the FIX95CPU patch before the initial boot into win95. it's listed in the patches section.
