Initio, Overview, Installation – Initio INI-9090U User Manual
will support Microsoft Windows 95 and Windows 95B (OSR2) with the addition
of a software driver. The installation procedure described here requires some experi-
ence in Windows 95 system setup and administration. The device driver is transferred
INI-9XXXU/9XXXUW DRIVER DISK 1
to the hard drive where it is automatically
initialized during the system boot routine.
The following files are used for installation and will be found on the
DRIVER DISK 1
INI-9XXX SCSI Host Adapter Windows 95 miniport driver.
Windows 95 installation information file.
The INI-9XXX driver developed for Windows 95 is loaded during the system boot routine
and will remain resident on the drive. This is accomplished by following one of the three
installation procedures listed:
New Windows 95 and Windows 95B (OSR2) installation.
Adding the Initio Windows 95 device driver to an existing Windows 95 or Windows 95B
Updating INI910U.MPD device driver
The procedures described to make changes to the system have distinct differences. It is
strongly suggested that the selected procedure be read and understood before proceed-
ing with the system configuration changes. Please read the instructions carefully.
To determine which version of Windows 95 you have installed on your system,
check the date of the KRNL32.DLL file located in your Windows directory. A file
date of 07/11/95 belongs to Windows 95, first release; 12/31/95 belongs to
Windows 95a or 95 with Service Pack 1; 08/24/96 reflects Windows 95b or OSR2.
New Windows 95/95a Installation
These instructions will guide you through the installation of the Initio host adapter driver while
installing Windows 95. Windows 95 will be installed from either a CD-ROM or floppy diskettes.
It is important that the hardware and DOS 4.01 or higher have been installed successfully
before proceeding further. If installing from a SCSI CD-ROM drive, it is important that the Initio
ASPI driver, and CD-ROM driver be installed before proceeding further.
