Hello,

You can possibly locate the files on your hard drive. These files should have the .cab extension. To do this, click Start > Find > enter *.cab in the Name & Location tab under Named: field. Where it say Look in: make sure you select your hard drive (usually C:). Then click Find Now. This will list all files with the .cab extension.

Here's a screenshot if needed.
http://oreilly.com/catalog/win95nut/chapter/ch03.html#39814
Figure 3-7. You may have minor differences depending on what version on 95 you have A,B, or C. If you have a submenu after clicking Find, choose Files & Folders.

Here is a link on how to verify the version of 95 that you have. Its really not that important as long as you havent upgraded the machine to a different operating system.

http://www.pcguide.com/proc/id/win95-c.html

Here is a list of the .cab files and what's in them. .cab files are in bold. Your version may not be exactly correct, but it should be very close.
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/app_info/95_cab.htm

Once the search is complete you will see a column labeled In Folder. Make note of what folder they are in and enter that directory in the Copy Files From dialog and press Enter. You may have to click OK to get the Copy Files From dialog after you are prompted to for the CD.

If the computer is a Dell, Gateway, HP, Compaq, etc the .cab files are usually stored in C:windowsoptionscabs. If your computer has been custom built, you will like have to follow the search procedure mentioned here to find them. There is even a good chance they may not be on the hard drive at all. In which case you have very limited options from that point.

Thanks

Install windows 95 from floppy


Microsoft Windows 95 employs the use of a bootable floppy disk to begin the installation of the Windows 95 operating system or to troubleshoot problems with the system. Microsoft Windows 95 uses the MS-DOS system to boot the computer first and then loads the Windows 95 operating system onto the machine. Windows 95 Boot Disks may be created in one of two ways: The Startup disk may be created from within Windows or a boot disk may be created from a free downloaded boot disk image. After the boot disk is created the disk may be used to boot the computer and install or troubleshoot Windows 95.

Click "Start" and then click "Settings" in Windows 95. Click the "Control Panel" option. Click "Add and Remove Programs." Click "Startup Disk" and then click "Create." Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive. Click "OK." The operating system will create the Windows 95 boot disk. Click "OK" when the disk is finished. Create the Windows 95 Boot Disk using Downloaded Boot Disk Image Open a Web browser and navigate to the boot disk image site (See "Below"). http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm Download the Windows 95 boot disk image and save the .EXE file to the desktop. Click the .EXE file to unzip the enclosed files. The formatting application will start. Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive and click "OK." The Windows 95 boot image will be created on the blank floppy disk. Use the Windows 95 Boot Disk Insert the Windows 95 boot up disk into the computer's floppy disk drive. Power the computer down by clicking "Start" and then clicking "Shutdown." Power on the computer with the Windows 95 boot disk in the floppy disk drive. The computer will boot up into MS-DOS to enable installation or troubleshooting of Windows 95.

How would i go about formatting a computer?


How to Format a Computer


Want to know how to format a computer hard drive?Need to learn how to format your computer and start with a clean slate? Formatting a disk prepares the surface of the drive to accept and store data. Computers are often formatted before they are sold, donated, or returned to an employer. Likewise, computers with viruses or errors can be formatted and returned to their "out of the box" settings.




Warning - Formatting hard drive information does not permanently erase the data. Even after a computer has been formatted, deleted files can be easily recovered. If you want to permanently wipe your hard drive by completely overwritting hard drive data, check out WipeDrive.

How to Format a Computer with Windows XP
The first step in learning how to format a computer with Windows XP or 2000, is to insert Windows CD and restart your computer.


Your computer should automatically boot from the CD to the Windows Setup Main Menu.


At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.


Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.


If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.


Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition.


Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.


Select the format option that you want to use for the partition (Recommended: NTFS), and then press ENTER.


After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue installing Windows.





How to Format a Computer with Windows 95, 98, or ME
To reinstall Windows, you will need a Startup Diskette and a Windows Installation CD.

Download the Startup Diskette Creator

Note: We recommend using the Startup Diskette available on this page. Other Windows Startup Diskettes may not work with the following steps.
Once you have your Startup Diskette, insert it into the floppy drive and restart your computer.


Select option #1 - Start the computer with CD-ROM support.


After a minute or so, you will see "A:>_".


Type "fdisk" and press Enter.


If asked to enable large disk support, select Y for Yes. (Note: Some versions of Windows 95 may not be compatible with large disk support. Select N here if it does not support the FAT32 file system.)


Select Option #1 - Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive.


Select Option #1 - Create Primary DOS Partition.


The drive integrity will be verified.


Unless you are planning to make multiple partitions, select Y when asked if you want to use the maximum available size for the partition and to make the partition active.


The drive integrity will be verified again.


When completed press the Esc key to exit fdisk.


Without removing the floppy disk, press the reset button on the computer or press the keys Ctrl then Alt then Delete and release them together. This will restart the computer.


Again, select the option to Start the computer with CD-ROM support.


When you see A:>, directly above it is a message about your CD-ROM drive. It will tell you the letter assigned to your CD-ROM drive, take note of it.


At the A:>, type "format C:" and press Enter.


Press the Y key then the enter key when asked if you want to proceed with the format.


The format will probably take some time, so be patient.


You will be asked to choose a Volume Label, which is a name for your hard drive. It has no effect on the operation of your computer, you may choose any name you like.





How to Reinstall Windows XP
To reinstall Windows XP or 2000, imply insert Windows CD and restart your computer.


If your hard drive has not been formatted, Windows XP will walk you through the formatting process described above


Your computer will automatically boot from the CD and begin the installation process



How to Reinstall Windows 95, 98, or ME
After formatting your hard drive as described above, insert the Startup Diskette into the floppy drive and restart your computer.


Select option #1 - Start the computer with CD-ROM support.


After a minute or so, you will see "A:>_".


Place the Windows Install CD into the CD-ROM drive.


Type "E:" (where E is the letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive) and press the Enter key.


Type "dir" and press Enter. You will see something like the following:

Compaq Presario 5WV270 Has No Oprating System


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
