Hello Windows 95

Windows 95

I got a copy of Windows 95 CD from John on Thursday. He was throwing it out, and I said I want it. This disk comes with Windows 95 (B) and Microsoft Plus! as seen in photo above.

I had a problem installing it under Parallels Desktop for Mac. The disc is not bootable. All modern Macs do not have a floppy drive.

According to Parallel Desktop for Mac User Guide, I will need to use an external USB floppy drive or an image file (of the floppy).

All Windows 95 and some of Windows 98 installation packages include a bootable floppy (a startup floppy disk). Floppy is used to perform disk partitioning and formatting by means of MS-DOS. Since a modern Macintosh computer do not have a floppy drive, you will need an external USB floppy drive or an image of a boot floppy. Please refer to the Floppy Disk Images (page 97) topic.

Thanks to the help from Don (Don_HH2K), I managed to get the Windows 98 boot up image in .img file and able to use it for installing Windows 95. You can read the development at this thread at SillyDog701 Message Centre.
