win95 minimum system requirements
« on: August 21, 2017, 07:50:48 AM »

hard drive sizes during windows 95 prevalance were usually less then 4GB;

The minimum hardware requirements for Microsoft Windows 95 are:

A personal computer with a 386DX, 20MHz or higher processor,
running the MS-DOS operating system version 3.2 or later,
or running Microsoft Windows version 3.0 or later,
or running OS/2 version 2.0 or later

Note: Do not install Windows 95 on a computer with a B1 (stepping) chip.

4MB of memory (8MB recommended)
At least 70MB of available hard disk space for installation
Actual requirements may vary based on features you choose to install. UITS recommends that you keep at least 10% of the drive free to reduce errors and fragmentation; therefore, on a 1GB drive, keep 100MB free.

One 3.5" high-density disk drive or a CD-ROM drive
VGA or higher resolution graphics card
Options, some of which are required by applications, include:

Mouse or compatible pointing device
Modem/fax modem
Audio card/speakers for sound
System requirements for Windows 95-based programs may exceed the minimum system requirements described above. To get the full benefits of preemptive multitasking, you need to use 32-bit Windows-based programs, such as those products bearing the "Designed for Windows 95" logo.
