Default Old Windows Operating Sytems FOC

Hi folks

Just in case anyone is interested in these before they go in the bin.....

1) Windows 95 installation on floppies. This is a sealed unopened pack containing about 24 floppies, the paper manual and a genuine Certificate of Authenticity with what I take it is the Product Key.

2) Two sets of Windows 98 Second edition with CDs, paper manual and Certificate of Authenticity and Product Key.

3) Windows 3.1 installation on 6 floppies with a Mouse/Trackerball floppy disc. I can't remember how many floppies were in a set for Windows 3.1. I have a feeling it was more than 6. I'm sure there are folk on here who will know.

These sets are all FOC if anyone wants them plus the cost of postage.

I would be interested in acquiring these, please.

By the way, six discs sounds about right for Windows 3.1. I have a six-disc set for Windows 3.11.

You need to install dos prior to Win 3.1. That's maybe why you think there's some discs short.

Having now found a set of discs for 3.1, there are seven discs therein.

Thank you very much, these have now arrived, so this is now completed.

By the way, the W3.1 version included is a different version from the one I already have, so it may be that six discs is the correct number after all. The only way I'll know for sure is if it calls for a disc I don't have when I come to install it.
