Hello Smurfy,

I've followed your directions for loading win95 onto an XP machine, I had to select the 64 bit download. Win95 loaded okay up to step 3 - restart. As it restarted, I get an error:

"While initializing device IOS: Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer."

I've restarted the Virtual PC using: Ctl/alt/del; close then start; and did a complete shutdown and restart on computer, same error every time whether I try normal or safe modes, safe mode command prompt does not give me the error.

Any suggestions on what might be causing this error? I did not use a boot floppy, just the original win95 cd-rom that came with my other computer.

Thank you,
