Question about Compaq PC Desktops
I have a Compaq Presario 5WV270 that had widows me on it, And I lost the hard drive on it. So I reformatted the hard drive, Now I have nothing on it and cannot find recovery disk and really cannot afford it now if I did find it. But i do have a Windows 95 disk, So how would I go about putting that windows 95 on the computer?
Installing windows 95 on your pc would require you to have a bootable disk (either a floppy or cd)
insert your bootable disk and go to bios settings --> once you start your desktop pc, press Del key
then go to Boot menu and select your frist boot to floppy or cd (wherever your bootable disk is) then exit and save changes.
once your pc boots from the bootable disk goto C:
then make a directory (let's say Win95) --> C:\md win95
then press enter
then goto that directory which you've just created ---> C;\cd win95
then press enter
then copy your windows 95 disk on this directory
once you finished copy, run setup
be sure to remove your bootable disk the next time your pc restarts or change the boot sequence (again in Bios settings) to your harddrive as first boot
hope this helps
