  1. Hi there, I have this old PC with no OP system it does its boot up and comes up with the message "Disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter" it has a different hdd in it coz the other one packed a sad it wont pick it up Obviously coz of the new settings in this new hdd, I was told it would only handel windows 95 version. So If I do get this CD and install it, it will solve the problem correct?

    in a short answer yes. If the hard disk doesn't have an OS, you''ll need to load one. On an old computer it would be best to use windows 98SE
