You use Fdisk to format the whole drive . Then try putting the windows disk in and getting windows to format the harddrive.

why did you even bother with w95?

its ok for OLD computers that would struggle with modern stuff but please try using something else.

all you need to do is use a boot floppy and use f/disk.........this will allow you to format the drive.
