Default floppy boot

It appears Microsoft has a boot download you can do for SetUp. I think I'll try this first, before looking for an ISO from a non-Micro source.

If it's a Dell, the existing CD-Key is on a sticker on the side or bottom of the machine. You will be able to do a repair install using this CD-Key. You may need to call Microsoft during the reactivation if it doesn't accept the key, but simply tell them you had to do a repair install and they will validate the key for you.

The floppies failed. Trying to get an ISO, but little luck so far. Just installed BitTorrent and found a download. 534MB file . . . 12,000MB free on this harddrive . . . The program is telling me that there's not enough free space on the disk to do the download? Anyone know about this?

What BitTorrent client are you using? If you're not using uTorrent, you should be.

if its win95, doesnt it have issues with files over a certain size? i know linux has a program called captive NTFS, and i remember there being a program that 98 could use, but i dont remember the name. used a similar concept too.

What letter is the main drive mounted on? Some things are picky and stupid, and try to use C: automatically. For a quick, but temporary fix for that problem, use "subst" in the command prompt, and use it to make a virtual drive of C:

Just to make it easier, for example, you'd use "subst C: D:/". The "D:/" is the drive you want to mirrior. If that fixes your problem, and you want to make it permanent, try changing the drive letter with the disk management tool.

Just a suggestion, because the same thing happened to me, and it worked, so...

Hope you can get it working.

Edit: Can't guarentee anything on a Win95 machine...
