This is the message I am receiving and Microsoft's advice.
ERROR I GET ON WINDOWS INSTALL
Setup could not create files on your startup drive and cannot set up Windows. If you have HPFS or Windows NT file system, you must create an MS-DOS boot partition. If you have LANtastic server or SuperStor compression, disable it before running Setup. See SETUP.TXT on Setup Disk 1 or the Windows CD-ROM.
You may receive this error message if you install Windows 95 over Windows 95 OSR2 and you are using the FAT32 file system on your hard disk. You may also receive this error message if you are running EZ Drive and you have the Floppy Boot Protection option enabled in EZ Drive. To resolve this behavior, disable the Floppy Boot Protection option in EZ Drive.

Now the only thing I haven't a clue about is how does one disable Floppy Boot Protection? Can't see any option in my bios and there is no 3rd party software running as the HDD is clean of any system files.
