  1. I have a notebook computer and I wanted to install windows 95 on it. I have a USB cdrom drive but the computer will not recognize itat all so I have decided to install windows 95 full version on floppies. The computer will not let me format my harddrive using the windows 95 floppy. I get the error message Invalid device parameters from device manager. That happens when i use the format C: command from dos. I was able to format my computer using windows 98 floppy though. Yes I have the setup boot disk that came from microsoft. If anyone can help me out it would be very much appreciated. Thank you. :)

    Also when windows 95 setup comes up it says error Setup can not install windows 95 on your computer
    An error was dectected while formatting your primary disk partition. Press enter to quit setup.

    Do not know if this is any help but i figured i would post it.
