Thread: hi really need help with windows 95 on vmware, please

  1. #1
    Hi from australia. Anyway this is my story and l'll try not to write too much, so as l don't bore anybody, l like to give detailed descriptions. Ok basically for the last 2 months (roughly) l have been messing about with virtual machines, (l never knew they even existed) and old windows operating systems. I've managed to install windows 98 SE on vmware workstation 6.5 (which l got from btjunkie), but the one problem that keeps stuffing me up is installing windows 95. Seriously l must have downloaded win 95 about 10 times from bit torrent search engines, i'm still getting nowhere. I mean l did install both the windows 95 iso image and the 22mb floopy image, and others i've downloaded and i can do most of the installation, however l keep getting a message saying insert disk 5 so l use the floopy image, anyway i receive a message stating there is no buslogic.wmd file (or something like that) beats me, and it asks for a path, this is during the final stages of the setup regarding hardware, or plug and play. l have also just ignored this but vmware tools wouldn't install and the windows screen wasn't full. l really would love it if l could solve this. I'm average at computers, anyway.

    If anyone can enlighten me on how l can overcome this problem, (simply getting windows 95 to run on vmware) or has any answers l'd be really excited because its really frustrating, l just need to know what i'm doing wrong, l guess i'm treating this as a mission to get windows 95 running, i'm pretty persistent actually, clear instructions would be fantastic, l like to learn about all of this myself too.

    Ok thanks, ciao )

    p.s. any questions just ask, and if this site has nothing to do with illegal downloading then ive made a complete idiot of myself (lol).

    Just an idea, though I don't know if it will make any difference...
    Try changing the hard disk controller in the vmware settings to IDE instead of SCSI.
    I think this setting is shown when you are setting up the virtual machine but you should also be able to get it after setting it up by editing the hardware/devices.

    Also, if that didn't work you may want to edit the hardware options and remove USB support. Unless I recall incorrectly, 95 only supported USB on the 95b version, and that was twitchy at best. Don't know if that will help, but it's worth a shot if you haven't tried it

    Use a different win 95 iso. Try to get an image of Windows 95 C. I just looked on MSDN for the name of the iso you need but strange enough windows 3.1 is there but no windows 95. If you google "All Windows DVD+the_single_man" you shall find 2 DVDs that have all Microsoft OSs except for Vista and Windows 7. You can make stand alone ISOs of any OS with them too.

    or google

    Oh man. Gotta love google
