i want to format the hd andi want to install widows xp pack3 and i can't boot by cdrom... how i install it now? help me
 
SP3 is just a windows update.you will need a windows XP install disk. depending on the version of it then it may already have SP3 on it. if not then windows update will download and install it

this is if windows update still works in an OS as old as XP though

LOL, I was going to say MS stopping updating Windows 95 18 years ago. Assuming the OP wants to install Windows 95 XP from a cdrom, and does not have a Windows boot disc, he will have to make one, which is dependent on the Operating system of the working computer one has. If you have an earlier want a 3 1/2" Windows XP boot disk you can possibly use one of the programs you can download one from this website. https://www.allbootdisks.com/download/xphome.html The file you down load will create a bootable 3 1/2" floopy, assuming you have a 3 1/3" floppy drive.

BTW, there is no Windows 95 SP3, only a SP2.5

lol where in this post was windows 95 mentioned
My bad. If you can't boot by CD ROM, I assume you can boot by 3 1/2" floppy. All you need is a 3 1/2" floppy drive, a diskette and to down load the Windows XP boot disk program from the link above (I edited the post for XP). These boot disks load the CD-ROM drivers so you can install from the CD-ROM.
