I tapped for the delete key and i tried the f2 also still taking me to no operating system found. Could it be that i need a boot disk for the windows platform because it seems like it keeps trying to read from the floppy drive for some reason.

Do you have 95 on Cd or on 3.5"? If it is the 13 3.5" disk then put in disk 1 and turn on the computer.
If 95 is on the Cd then you will need a 95 boot 3.5"
95 boot disk
So have you the cd or 13 3.5" floppys?

I have a cd version. I'll try downloading the boot disk tho.

Edit: With the boot disk it went to installing windows 95 but then asked for an A:// command in dos so im not exactly sure where to go from there.

ok go back to boot disk and download a 98se boot disk
boot with this in the machine then choose the start with cd support.
You can then try the 98 upgrade disk. As metioned before you should just have to put in the 95 disk when ask to confirm it is an upgrade.
