These disks are original boot floppy disk media for use with Microsoft Windows CD-ROMs. Not all Windows 9x/ME CDs are bootable, not all CDs included boot disks, and DOS will not see a CD-ROM drive unless a driver is loaded. OEMs were expected to provide compatible CD-ROM with the boot media provided with.

Learning has never been so easy!

This is a step-by-step how-to on how to copy a Windows 95 hard drive. This was very useful for me when backing up some of out older machines that are running WIN95.

26 Steps total

Step 1: Make sure you have a Windows 95 boot disk with the following files:

Blackweb gaming mouse dpi settings. o MSDOS.SYS (hidden file)
o IO.SYS (hidden file)
o COMMAND.COM
o FORMAT.COM
o FDISK.EXE
o SYS.COM

Step 2: Install the new hard drive as a single drive first.

Step 3: Boot off the Windows 95 boot disk.

Step 4: Type 'fdisk' and set up the new hard drive.

Step 5: Reboot off the same Windows 95 boot disk.

Step 6: Type 'format c:' (but do not include the '/s' command).

Step 7: Reboot one more time off the same Windows 95 boot disk.

Step 8: Make sure you can access 'C:' and there are no files shown.

Step 9: Set up your new hard drive as a slave to your old hard drive.

Step 10: Boot Windows 95 like you always would.

Step 11: Make sure there is a 'D:' present.

Step 12: Go to Control Panel and double-click on System.

Step 13: Go to Performance and click on Virtual Memory.

Step 14: Disable Virtual Memory (with 8MB or less of RAM, you'll have to skip this step)

Step 15: Close Control Panel and reboot the computer.

Step 16: When you see 'Starting Windows 95..' hit F8.

Step 17: Choose Safe Mode.

Step 18: Once you are running in Safe Mode, click on Start and go to Run.

Step 19: Type 'xcopy32 c:*.* d: /h /e /c /k /y'

Step 23: Make the slave drive a single drive again.

Step 24: Boot off the same old Windows 95 boot disk.

Step 25: Type 'sys c:'

Step 26: Remove the disk and attempt to boot off the hard drive.

Very handy when you are working with older machines and operating systems like I have to.

    This is Not related with Site issue but Software issue.
    No problem to download and archive file is not broken.
    Only problem is related with bad dumped (broken) boot disk image.
    Read this carefully.
    ('Site Issues : Any difficulties in using our site, forums or *obtaining* downloads from our software library should be posted here. Issues with downloaded content should go to the Software forum!')
    Therefore this is problem with downloaded content.
    I recommend to write this on Software forum.

    I've dumped it from Win95 OEM CD-ROM boot disk.
  • you need a boot floppy first for osr 2.5, put in the CD when you are asked for it.

    Boot floppy “Microsoft Windows 95 OSR2 - Boot Disk (OAK CD-ROM) (3.5-1.44mb).7z” is invalid :roll: . As You can read from screenshot – there is not such file as MTMCDAI.SYS on that boot floppy.
    That boot floppy also have invalid boot sector with incorrect OEM name “…IHC” – it’s a fake floppy and maybe it contains boot virus. There is also fully recoverable internet shortcut “VERITAS Software” on that fake floppy.
  • It has been removed.

    Good, is there anyway you can find out who uploaded it, and ban their ass?

    The disk image may well have been a custom hack, but that does not mean that it was a deliberate fake. A deliberate fake is something that is done with the clear intent to mislead others into believing that it is real. Most likely, this was simply a case of the uploader not knowing to check to see whether it is original first before actually uploading it afterwards, or possibly mistaking a custom disk image for an original one.
    Users should only be punished if any of their contributions are done with the intent to mislead others. This disk image on the other hand very clearly is not an original, but it almost certainly was not done with the intent to mislead. Instead, the user should be informed to check their uploads first before uploading them in the future.

    There it is - right there - the kind of BS talk that causes me to despise betaarchive. Not because people make comments like yours (people do this everywhere), but that it is tolerated.
    There are very few people that deliberately upload crap. And there are a great many people who think they've found a long lost treasure only to find it's a dupe, or a fake crafted years before it was 'found'.
    This repository, betarchive, vetusware, oldskool, archive dot org - all sites depend on people who really have better things to do than post 'bad stuff'.
    These sites work best, when instead of finger-pointing (um, um, um - it's not original dump) (um, it didn't do what it said) users can offer a better option, and let it go at that.
    Frankly, people get so wrapped up in perfection for the sake of perfection, that they lose sight that the purpose of this software is to rediscover and in some cases extend the usefulness of old hardware/software and to generate relationships.
    Can't be doing that if someone brings out a stake and firewood at every perceived 'infraction'.

    The answer is all in your reply. Veritas is an old name in disk recovery software that Symantec long ago acquired. It seems more likely its a munged bare metal floppy boot disk.

    Calm your tits man.
    If it turns out to be an honest mistake, ok no biggy, however if they knowingly uplodaded something and named it something else, that'd be a legit reason to not want them here.
  • How about instead of bickering about it, you all dig around and see if you can turn up an unmodified 95 CD-ROM boot disk.
