    What is an upgrade, the installation or the installation cd? if the CD is an upgrade version, it will be looking for the windows directory, I believe. you might be able just to install DOS first, and then upgrade from there. Other than that, you will have to install W3.1 first ... (and I am not even going to ask why you would want to install W95)

    Good site, Ryandor, but I believe amphrodite was looking for a way to do a clean install of W95 using a W95 upgrade CD (which means he/she needs W3.1 or ?DOS? installed, first)...

    Which is why I posted it. There's some info in that page that is related.
    This is part of the info you'll need to get the upgrade to install without having a previous version. Where you get the actual files, matters not. But at at least you know which files you need. As it is, I consider this a gray area of discussion (for NTFS at least) which was why I was rather vague.
    If it's no help, it can at least point the way.
