I'm attempting something that might seem crazy but I got stuck at the end. I am installing Windows 95, on a flash drive, using a PC with modern hardware (Not a virtual machine!). I got around the memory issue (16GB > 1GB) with
MaxPhysPage and the
Windows protection error issue (4.0GHz > 2.1GHz) with
CPU95FIX. I can boot into Windows 95, the basic things work (keyboard and screen at really low resolution), but the mouse... It is recognized as a mouse but even a single tiny movement can make it teleport everywhere, randomly click at random places and drag from random places to random places.
At first, the installer also had this issue but the installer has a flag for it.
SETUP /iL makes the installer load the Logitech mouse drivers instead of the normal mouse drivers and that seemed to fix the mouse for the setup. However, I couldn't figure out how to load these drivers on the actual installation so the mouse works normally there. If there is a file inside the installation CD, what's the path to it? If the installation already has the driver, how can I activate it? If there is a 3rd party driver I need to install, where can I get it from?
The mouse is a wireless Logitech M705 connected via Logitech's USB dongle. The same dongle is also connected to the keyboard. I am yet to figure out how it works at all but it works and I'm not going to question it.
autoexec.bat; I don't know what the driver's called, but if you find out and it works please post an answer.
gmouse.com(genius) for all the mouses that was making a fuss. Do you have USB legacy support enabled in BIOS ? The USB dongle is connected to USB 2.0 I hope ... the 3.0 ports are not reliable for old HW or SW...
