I'm installing Windows 95 (OSR2.5) on a semi-modern PC.
The PC has ran Windows 3.1 and even a version of 2, but I just can't seem to get 95 to work.
after installing it, then fixing a memory error, I tried to install the Fix95CPU patch on the pc, and it installed correctly.. except, it did not, as I still get a protection error, this time though, without any message. just:
Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer
So the patch doesn't work, and I know it can't be the memory
does anyone know how I can get this to work? such as editing some system files?
Here are my PC Specs:
CPU: Intel Celeron.
GPU: Nvidia GT9600 (version with red circuit board, and only VGA).
RAM: 1GB, but there was an easy fix for Windows 95 (system.ini).
CD/DVD ROM, Windows 95 is burned on a CD.
(for the record, I know that it is an old operating system, but as said above, it ran older ones)
Edit for extra information:
Before the main bootscreen, an error message along the lines of:
invalid file MSDOS.SYS file:winver=4.01
although, right after this, the main bootscreen starts, and then the "protection error" shows.
second, here are the patches I used:
CPU patch: Fix95CPU
RAM patch: C:/windows/system.ini >>> added "MaxPhysPage=3B000" to stop giving me error messages
(worked in Windows 98, although I know they are two very different operating systems)
