I tried to do this on my win 95 computer and it F****d up big time. I had to format my hard drive and reinstall everything, all my files became corrupted and it reconfigured my monitor to monochrome. Heed my warning, don't do this, it's some kind of sick joke.

Anyone else think that this egg is impossible? I only get a black screen for about 0.000000000001 seconds!!

Ok, I don't have Windows 95 and I don't know if it will work on Win98, but just something to try: Reboot your computer and hold F5 while it's booting. It will boot into safe mode, and I noticed that on almost every computer, no matter how fast, there is a black screen that takes forever to load. Try pressing the buttons on that. Otherwise, I know what you mean about it loading so fast. -Burbble

I have Windows 95 installed on a 25Mhz 486. On this PC the black screen appears for a long time. I was easily able to press the key combination but the easter egg STILL didn't work.

What black screen do you mean? The one that says "Windows is starting up_" or the AUTOEXEC.BAT boot screen (the one that usually appers last)?

if you can't get it to work, is the image hidden somewhere in the system files?

Read this page to see how you can set a delay during load time. http://www.pcmech.com/article.htm?tip4 This method's a little more extreme, but guaranteed to work. I recommend backing up (copying) msdos.sys into another folder before trying this trick, but it should work. DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE MSDOS.SYS MODIFIED VALUES BACK TO EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE! (or replace modified with original backup.)

Oh this easter egg is true. My sister had friends in collage that have made Nugget appear. Therefore he is real (but i can't ever get it to work).

I changed the boot delay in my msdos.sys file, all it does is delay windows loading, it does not delay the background loading. I use an older computer and even a graphically intense picture loads in about 1/100th of a second. Is there a key command that will freeze the computer right before the background loads?

It works! Finally... in frustration I found out you actually have to rightclick TWICE at the end. Hope that helps! ;)

...E... is right, allowing that you don't have a really fast computer. I found the largest wallpaper I could on the internet, and it loaded still in under a second!
