Need an original (unmodified) Windows 95 CD-ROM Setup Boot Disk image

34 posts in this topic

Hey guys!

I was looking for an untouched Windows 95 Boot Floppy image for CD-ROM install in all the Internet and I didn't find it.

Can anybody still having this floppy disk, please make a disk image of it and upload it to somewhere else? The Microsoft part number of this floppy disk is 000-13159.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Javier Donoso.

You would need to modify any disk in order to provide a working CDROM driver compatible with the particular unit on the PC you required it for.

It's beacuse I'm against counterfeiting.

BOOTDISKS.COM - as was stated, even an "unmodified" is (AFAIK) an OEM version and needs the CD driver (floppy altered by the OEM). I have one, but it's pointless. It does nothing more than boot to DOS and has a few modules on it. Essentially, in and of itself, useless until altered.

Anyway, please upload a disk image of it!

EDIT: It contains DRVCopy.inf.

I don't know why anyone thinks they need a win-9x "boot floppy". There is no such thing as a "boot floppy" as far as I'm concerned. If you have access to a win-9x machine, then insert a floppy disk and go "format c: a: /s". You'll have a DOS on a bootable floppy disk.

copy these files to the floppy:

- mscdex.exe

- himem.sys

- smartdrv.exe

- emm386.exe

You must find and copy one of these files to the floppy as well:

- cdrom.sys

- cdtech.sys

- MTMCDAI.SYS

If you can find all three, then do it.

create an autoexec.bat file on the floppy and put this in it:

SMARTDRV.EXE A- B- C+ /V 4096 4096 /E:8192 /B:8192

MSCDEX.EXE /D:MTMIDE01 /V /S /M:8

create config.sys on the floppy and put this in it:

DEVICE=HIMEM.SYS /verbose

DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS D=64 A=15 VERBOSE

DOS=HIGH,UMB

rem DEVICEHIGH=CDROM.SYS /D:MSCD001 /DMA

rem DEVICEHIGH=CDTECH.SYS /D:MSCD001 /UDMA2 /V

rem DEVICEHIGH=MTMCDAI.SYS /D:MTMIDE01

Remove the "rem" in front of ONE of the above lines that matches the cd-rom driver that you copied to the floppy.

That's it. Change the computer's boot sequence so that the floppy drive is booted first, and boot from the floppy. Your CD -rom drive should now be accessible as the D drive. So put your win-95 cd in and change to the D drive at the DOS prompt and run setup from the CD.

Alternatively, you could save yourself some time and connect the drive you want to install win-95 on to a running computer as a slave drive, format it on that computer, and copy the win-95 cd to that computer. Then remove the drive and re-connect it back to the installation computer and run setup from the hard drive.

strikethrough and replace driveletter in order to prevent formatting the system drive.

DRVCOPY.INF has the sole purpose of copying the CD-ROM driver to the HDD. Look here for what's on a boot disk. A simple google on that particular file will get you an example. It's used by "OEMSETUP" as a parameter input. There's nothing mystical about it. Everything you "need" is as posted above by others.

PS: All files on the boot disk I'm looking for have this timestamp:

July 11 1995, 9:50 AM.

How do you know that?

Are you sure those timestamps are not counterfeited? :unsure:

The July 11 1995, 9:50 AM timestamp is the genuine one, according to the Windows 95 CD-ROM.

Why are you being EXCESSIVELY anal about this?

You DO KNOW that any disk copied then uploaded to you fits your stigma of being counterfeited?

Also if you want to be really "secure" like you seem to be, you should check the MD5 or CRC32 and not the date and time because date and time can easily counterfeited with the unixtool touch.exe (for example).

The July 11 1995, 9:50 AM should mean Windows 95 A.

With reference to one of the liinks I posted, most files seems like sporting this date, exceptions:

AUTOEXEC.BAT		45		MS-DOS Batch File		05/26/1999 04:45:20 PM
CD1.SYS 34,262 System file 09/26/1996 05:13:04 PM
CD2.SYS 16,504 System file 11/21/1996 01:54:00 AM
CD3.SYS 19,984 System file 08/13/1996 01:03:02 AM
CD4.SYS 41,302 System file 05/11/1998 08:01:00 PM
CONFIG.SYS 377 System file 05/29/1999 12:20:38 PM
EXTRACT.EXE 46,656 Application 10/01/1997 04:00:30 PM
MSDOS.SYS 6 System file 10/02/1997 01:53:10 AM
SCANDISK.EXE 134,738 Application 10/01/1997 04:00:30 PM

The CD*.sys files are (updated) drivers (it is a good thing)-

The autoexec.bat, config.sys and msdos.sys are "configuration files" it is quite normal that they have been modified.

The EXTRACT.EXE and SCANDISK.EXE are updated versions (it's a good thing).

WHAT is the problem? :w00t:

Cannot say what you are driving at ,however I can see where you come from :ph34r::

The problem is this: the genuine boot floppy contains the DRVCopy.inf file.

The OP sounds like a collector. The thing that surprises me is that he didn't specify the exact version of win95 or that it be in Spanish, the language of his country.

I suggest one of the OS collecting forums. I don't think the rules permit me to post a link here so I suggest googling for them.

I doubt that Win 95 A Spanish will have dates/times July 11 1995, 9:50 AM as requested.

You might have missed post # 16, he WAS there (and came here, after having hassled a bit the guys over there with no result).

Anyway, my post (#20) contains what the asked for, result of 15 minutes of googleing, let's see what happens now, maybe the fact that the floppy uses a modified DRVCOPY.INF to load TEAC_CDI.SYS will make it "counterfeited" :unsure:

Why do I keep hearing the Looney Tunes theme song?

For no apparent reason, a LOLCAT:
