Upgrading the OmniBook 600 to Windows 95

********************  NOTE  ********************
If you have already upgraded to Windows 95
(BEFORE upgrading the BIOS to version 4.0), you should
NOT install Windows 95 into the current Windows directory.
Doing so will result in an unstable software configuration.

1. To change the password you will be prompted to
   enter the old password. Enter the old password and
   click on OK.
2. The password flags should be set to "At turn-on after
   FN>OFF" and clear the "Prompt for password before
   undocking" box if it is checked.
3. When prompted to enter the new password do not enter
   any text and do not press enter.  Click on OK.  This
   will empty or "delete" the password.

1. Plug in the A/C adapter. Leave it plugged in for
   the entire process.
2. BACKUP the files on drive C as a precaution.
3. Exit Windows.
4. Insert the Windows 95 HP BIOS version 4.0 disk in the
   floppy drive.
5. At the MS-DOS prompt type "a:\install".
6. After the BIOS upgrade finishes, remove the disk
   from the floppy drive.
7. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to reboot.
   Ignore any error messages during the first reboot.
   The OmniBook will reboot automatically one or more
   times.  If it does not reboot the final time you may
   need to press the reset button.

1. Insert the Microsoft Windows 95 setup disk #1 in
   the floppy drive (or insert the Microsoft Windows
   CD-ROM in a CD-ROM drive).
2. Exit Windows and from the DOS prompt type "a:\setup".
   (For a CD-ROM, use its drive letter and
   \win95\setup instead.)
3. When you are asked which directory to install into,
   choose C:\Windows.
4. It is strongly recommended that you let Windows 95
   create backup copies of your system files.
5. Under "Setup Options" you should choose Portable.
6. Even if you are connected to an Enhanced Port Replicator
   with a LAN card and/or using a 600CT do not select 
   "Network Adapter" or "Sound, MIDI, or Video Capture Card".
7. It is strongly recommended that you let Windows 95 create
   a startup disk for you.
8. It may take several minutes for Windows 95 to load for
   the first time after the installation is complete.
9. Once Windows 95 has been configured and is successfully
   running on the OmniBook you are ready to load the HP
   Windows 95 drivers.

********************  IMPORTANT  ********************
You MUST SHUTDOWN Windows 95 and reset the OmniBook
before continuing.  Failure to do so may result in
you having to reinstall Windows 95.

1. After Windows 95 restarts, insert The HP Windows 95
   HP Drivers Disk #1 in the floppy drive.
2. Click Start, Run, and type "a:\setup".
3. At the end of the Setup program, allow Setup to
   restart the computer. Remove the HP Drivers disk
   from the floppy drive before the OmniBook restarts.
   After Windows 95 restarts reinsert Disk 2 into the
   floppy drive.

********************  NOTE  ********************
The following step occurs during startup and will
differ depending on whether the OmniBook is docked,
or not.

4. When Windows 95 restarts, it goes through a process
   of evaluating the new configuration. You may be
   prompted many times about unknown devices or about
   restarting the computer:
    - If you're prompted about an unknown device,
      choose "Do not install a driver." It will
      automatically be set up later.
    - If you're prompted about restarting the computer
      after detecting unknown devices, choose No. You
      will restart it later.
5. When Windows 95 finishes starting, click Start,
   Settings, Control Panel.
