Hello. I have recently installed Win95 and it cannot startup, after
installing, after the "Win95 is starting for the first time" screen, it says
that is has a problem with the IOS controller. I formatted and installed
again, and the same happened. Any suggestion?
Thanks in advance :) 

More about : startup

What is the exact message?

Has W95 run on this machine before? How much RAM is installed in this
machine, and what speed is it running at?

Hi. Thank you for replying so quickly!
I have never ran Win95 in this machine before. But I have WinXP and Win98
running and they work ok. It's a Pentium 4 2.4 Ghz 256 mb ram, so it should
work perfectly ok.
The exact message is the following (actually it's a translation because I
have Win95 in Spanish but it's the same, right?): "When initializing the IOS
device: Protection error. It is necessary to reboot the machine".
Thank you ^^

you would need this patch for processor of that speed and win95 (originally
K6-2 350 AMD patch) to allow win95 to run on systems 350mhz and up

Hi, thank you so much for helping.
I checked that page and it says I need certain version of Windows in order
to use it. How can I check which version I have? I cannot startup the system
but I can see the files in the partition where it's installed. Tried opening
Winver but it just says "Windows 95".
Thanks!

check control panel >system if under system it does not have a version
number with a "B" on the end ...your version of win95 is an earliers version
"4.00.9500 B"

this patch is only good for win95B/C (OSR SR2) ...I'm afraid if you don't
have that version , you won't get very far on that computer without the
patch...

hope that helps :>

Thanks for helping ^^
No, I can't start the system =\
The version I have is 4.00.950 B so it applies for the patch, the problem is
how do I install it?
Thanks in advance :)

finally can run Win95, thank you very much! =D
now my question is: how do I install "updates" or whatever I can? =S
it has IE 3.01 and old things like that... where can I download Internet
Explorer 5 that, as I know, it's the last version supported by Win95?
checked in Microsoft but it's not available
thank you very much!

The latest version of IE that will run under Win95 is IE5.5SP2. It can
be had here: http://browsers.evolt.org/?ie/32bit

You can also run the latest versions of Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox
(http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/), which are more up to date
and more standards-compliant than IE.
