I am still working on my Thinkpad 755c. As I said before, I decided to
put windows 95 on it, so I formatted the hard disk drive and started out
fresh. I finally got it formatted and fdiskded, and had it booting to
I do not have a powersuply for the unit, so I must run it from the
docking station. I installed drivers for the cd-rom (internal in doc),
and was able to change directories to the D drive (cd) and copy files
>from my CD drive to my hard disk drive.
I put in my windows 95 disk and typed setup, nothing happened. The
system locked, I had to turn it off, then back on. I even tried to copy
the windows 95 directory to my HDD, then run setup, same thing happened,
I typed setup, unit locked.
I finally ended up installing my backpack external cd-rom and installing
my windows 95 from it, which installed fine. Once I got windows 95
going, the internal cd-rom drive showed up fine, but does not work fine.
I am able to view all of the files, but when I click on them and try to
run them (.exe type), I get the message, "A DEVICE ATTACHED TO THE
SYSTEM IS NOT FUNCTIONING." ERROR.
What can I do about this?????
Is it a software thing??
I just do not know what to do about it, as I have allready installed
windows 95 twice, and formatted twice. Please let me know ASAP if you
