Command Interpreter unable to access C:\ after formating

Question

Hello There

I made a mess of my hard drive software and decided to start afresh. I reformatted the hard drive and now get an error message 'Invalid system disk Replace the disk,and then press any key'.When I do this I get ?Type the name of the Command Interpreter e.g. C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM)? A> Nothing I type after A> will change the error message. I have a new copy of windows 95 on CD that I would like to install. Is there any way of making the start up go to the CD drive and read the new disk please?

Regards

Denis
