Default win protection error

yep never thought i would see this error again, but i have!!

I want to use windows 95 for a number of reasons (dont ask)!, so i formatted my hardrive and used fdisk to setup my FAT16 partitions. Everything was going fine and i installed windows 95 ok, now just as it finished installing and i had to reboot the comp, when it boots back up i get the error message "WHILE INITIALIZING DEVICE IOS: WINDOWS PROTECTION ERROR. YOU NEED TO RESTART YOUR COMP".

I restarted my comp as instructed but again got the same message, and it seems that i can not get past this screen.

Any idea folks? i am really stumped!

oh and yeah this is not the same computer that is in my sig lol!
