Windows 95 OSR 2 Windows 95 offered, at long last, a well designed document-oriented desktop shell that worked much like the 1984 Macintosh Finder. It also included a new way of finding installed applications through a 'Start' menu. And it included the same networking abilities as Windows for Workgroups. It integrated the ability to run 32-bit applications similar to or with Win32s. It no longer ran on a separate DOS product. But Windows 95 was not a pure '32-bit' OS: It was still based around the framework of Windows 3.x, 2.x and 1.x. It still ran on top of DOS, but bundled its own special 'Windows 95' DOS (AKA MS-DOS 7).
It could even still make use of DOS drivers. The 95 architecture was continued with. Most 95 CDs are NOT BOOTABLE.

I just recently acquired a fairly old PC that was running Windows 98. I figured I'd take a little nostalgia trip and install Windows 95 on it.

The computer doesn't have a floppy drive, so the original boot disc is of no help. The format erased the CD-ROM drivers, so the only thing that runs are boot-able CDs with drivers already on them. I have found a couple of places on the net that offer boot-able Windows 95 CDs, but every one I have come across is not offering disc images, but rather self-extracting.exe files. This is also no help to me because none of my other computers are currently running Windows. Does anyone have any suggestions?
