I have a problem with the installation of Windows 95.
Following previous problems, I a) formatted my hard
disk, b) installed Windows 95 from floppy disks ( no other
software) and then c) booted up. Windows 95 booted up normally
the first, second and third time. But from the fourth time on,
it booted into "Safe Mode".
However, if I hit F8 while loading and then hit
either 1) Normal or 2) Confirm-each-step or 3) Dos Prompt (and
then Win), Windows 95 boots up normally!
However, on occasions, after fiddling around with the
machine and then booting, Win 95 boots normally. However, as
mentioned above, in over 90% of cases when I boot up and do not
hit F8, Windows 95 boots into Safe Mode.
I have followed Windows 95 Troubleshooting guide and
checked for hardware conflicts, including IR conflicts, but
found none. I have run MacAfee and Thunderbyte anti-virus with
Any help in solving the problem would be appreciated.
