Windows 95 isn't designed to run on systems with this amount of RAM. Windows 95 is incredibly limited by today's standards, I would seriously recommend running a newer operating system on it.
What are the specs of the PC?

When you say you can't get any OS installed, what error message do you get? Does it just not load up Windows setup? Have you tried checking the boot device order in the BIOS?

Is it a OEM, Retail or downloaded coy from the internet?
To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS
- Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.
Hopefully you have already put the Vista cd in the drive before all this. If everything is setup correctly you will get a black screen with the following message in the upper left corner:
- "Push Any Key To Boot To Cd". When you see this then push any key and the cd will take over. Then follow the prompts or if you need assistance we will help.
