Summary

This article describes dual-booting between Microsoft Windows NT Workstation and Microsoft Windows 95.

More information

If you have Windows 95 installed and then install Windows NT Workstation 4.0, the Windows NT boot loader menu is displayed when you start your computer after Windows NT Workstation installation is complete. Windows NT Workstation starts by default. To start Windows 95, select Microsoft Windows from the Windows NT boot loader menu.

If you have Windows NT Workstation 4.0 installed and then install Windows 95, the Windows NT boot loader appears when you start your computer after Windows 95 installation is complete. To retain the NT boot loader after installing Windows 95, the system must have been booted to MS-DOS from the NT boot menu, not from a DOS diskette. Windows NT Workstation starts by default. To start Windows 95, select MS-DOS from the Windows NT boot loader menu.
