A friend's IBM aptiva was in a "demo" mode. We reformatted the hard drive and installed Win95. When starting we get an error message: "While initializing device IOS: Windows protection error. you need to restart your computuer."

We even tried starting in safe mode and we get the same error message.

If there's an AMD CPU faster than 333MHz used then it's a MS Win95 BUG - get the AMD K6-update rom MS - all versions of Win95 affected but fix only for Win95B/C .
If you have a slower CPU try to slow down memory timings n Bios
