I have Compaq Presario 5220 with Win 98 installed. i made a clean install with DOS 6.22 original Diskette's. I then installed Windows 3.1 with no problem. Now i am trying to install Win 95. i have the 95 upgrade CD but 3.1 will not "see" the CD-ROM drive to install. I do not have enough Floppy Disk's to have 95 floppy install. How can i get 3.1 to see CD-ROM and install Win 95. I do not remember from years ago how to do this. Dang new technology, i knew i shouldn't have stopped using old computers.

It's been a long time but I don't think 3.1 came with cd drivers. You will have to dig up the drivers to get your cd to work. Did you try to boot off the Win 95 cd? Might have to change some settings in your bios to get booting from cd to work. Lots of luck!
