Please tell me how to make a bootable floppy with the correct files to Fdisk and Format this new hard drive?
In order to create a bootable floppy you must first format a floppy diskette with system files. Then copy the following files to the diskette. Fdisk.exe, Format.com, Mscdex.exe, and Himem.sys. After you have copied these files to the diskette label it, “Bootable floppy diskette” You have now all the files needed to prep a hard drive for installation of an operating system. I recently purchased a new motherboard, memory and K6-2/400 from Directron.com. When I tried to boot up into Windows95 I got, “Windows Protection” errors. Is there something wrong with the new parts I have purchased? A patch is needed to run Windows 95 with an AMD K6-2/350 and above. The patch can be found at http://www.microsoft.com or http://www.amd.com. The patch should take care of the problem.
