Need help installing "CPU Patch" on "Win95"
I have a 1800XP CPU, which means that when I try to boot into Windows 95 it locks up with a "windows protection error". I not have the "K6/2 350Mhz patch" from Microsoft, but how can I install it when I am unable to enter Windows 95? I can't underclock my proccessor, cus the FSB don't go that low, and its not an unlocked CPU. I have the files from the install program extracted to a seperate directory. Any way to install these files manually?

Windows 95 barely had USB support. It's Plug-N-Play functionality was not so developed. Most hardware vendors don't even write drivers for it anymore. And compared to the other M$ operating systems it was very unstable.

Why are you wasting your time with a 7 year old operating system? You have a brand new system, why not take advantage of it's capabilities and install a newer OS? That 1800XP processor is a waste under win95.

To install the patch, simply press F5 to enter safe-mode during Windows start-up, once in safe mode, you can run the patch to correct the timing problem.

Thx [b]duffy90210[/b].
[b]QWERTY[/b]. I'm right into tweaking and messing around with my comp. At the mo I use WinXP/98SE/2K and a few Linii distros. I just wanted to mess around with 95 a little, cus I found a few progs lieing around from the olddy days.

Damn. Still can't access safe-mode. I can use DOS, if i know what files to move and what files to edit. How did people who reinstalled their system in the past install this patch?

I have done this many times, in Windows 95, when you see the message "Starting Windows 95 ...." Press F5, you will go into safe mode and then run the patch...
