I purchased a second hand pc. It's a Compaq Deskpro PII 266 with 64 mb RAM and a 3.2 gb hard drive. It came with only dos on it. I installed Windows 95 (a fairly new version that allows over 2 gb partitions). I could only see 2 gb and a friend told me to run fdisk and then format it. This would delete all the data but would allow me to access the full 3.2 gb by using the option to allow large hard disk sizes. I backed up all the dos files (including the system files), booted the PC into dos and ran fdisk and then format. Now the PC does not work. When I try and copy the backed up files on to the PC and try to run anything it comes up with an error 'Incorrect version of dos'.
