Hi all, i've been searching all night and cannot get win95 to work on my multiboot dvd.

My dosc contains Win95, Win98, WinME, Xp Home, Pro & MCE 2005.

The setup files are located in a folder named setup ie:

C:\DVD\Setup\95\
C:\DVD\Setup\98SE\
C:\DVD\Setup\Me\
C:\DVD\Setup\XP\Home
C:\DVD\Setup\XP\Pro
C:\DVD\Setup\XP\MCE

i am using cdshell.ini to chain the corresponding ima or dat files.

98Se, Me and Xp all boot perfectly but i cannot find a win95 ima that chains succesfully.

I tried using the one i am using for win98 and changing the autoexec setup.exe line to point to win95 setup but it boots the floppy and then tells me:

starting win95 setup

Please insert a win95 floppy and restart your computer.

This is my autoexec for win98

@ECHO OFF

set LglDrv=27 * 26 Z 25 Y 24 X 23 W 22 V 21 U 20 T 19 S 18 R 17 Q 16 P 15
set LglDrv=%LglDrv% O 14 N 13 M 12 L 11 K 10 J 9 I 8 H 7 G 6 F 5 E 4 D 3 C

OEMSETUP.EXE
echo.

echo.
rem clean up environment variables
set CDROM=
set LglDrv=


This is how i changed it for Win95

@ECHO OFF
set EXPAND=YES
SET DIRCMD=/O:N
set LglDrv=27 * 26 Z 25 Y 24 X 23 W 22 V 21 U 20 T 19 S 18 R 17 Q 16 P 15
set LglDrv=%LglDrv% O 14 N 13 M 12 L 11 K 10 J 9 I 8 H 7 G 6 F 5 E 4 D 3 C
cls
call setramd.bat %LglDrv%
set temp=c:\
set tmp=c:\
path=%RAMD%:\;a:\;%CDROM%:\
copy command.com %RAMD%:\ > NUL
set comspec=%RAMD%:\command.com
copy extract.exe %RAMD%:\ > NUL
copy readme.txt %RAMD%:\ > NUL

:ERROR
IF EXIST ebd.cab GOTO EXT
echo Please insert Windows 98 Startup Disk 2
echo.
pause
GOTO ERROR

:EXT
%RAMD%:\extract /y /e /l %RAMD%: ebd.cab > NUL
echo The diagnostic tools were successfully loaded to drive %RAMD%.
echo.
LH %ramd%:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:mscd001 /L:%CDROM%
echo.
cls
echo Now installing Windows 98 SE
echo.
echo Loading...
path=%RAMD%:\;a:\;%CDROM%:\SETUP\95\WIN95\
OEMSETUP.EXE
echo.
GOTO QUIT

:QUIT
echo To get help, type HELP and press ENTER.
echo.
rem clean up environment variables
set CDROM=
set LglDrv=


If anyone can suggest how i might make it work or even supply a working image for win95 i'd be very grateful.

Thanks

Mike
