Q: I have an old laptop that I accidentally formatted the entire OS on, it was running Vista. I have a game CD of one of my favorite old single shooter games, “The House of the Dead”, and it only runs on Win 95 or 98…..I’ve tried every trick I can think of to run the game on my new laptop with Win 7, even the compatibility thingy. Anyway, my question is, can I just purchase off of Ebay a Win 95 or 98 OS and install it on my old laptop even though the Bios is set for Vista?
