Win 3.1 & Win 95 in separate partitions
Posted on 1997-02-17
I have a new computer with Win 95 installed in one 2-gigabyte partition and a second 2-gigabyte partition that is blank. I would like to install Win 3.1 and DOS 6.22 in the blank partition, and access either partion at boot-up.
I read the following information in a Windows 95 book for doing this and would like to know if this will avert any problems in future operation:
"If you set up your computer for dual boot mode (by installing Windows 95 in a separate folder from your previous version of Windows), you have another way to start your computer with your old operating system. Restart the PC, wait for the beep, and then press F4. Windows 95 immediately restores your old AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files and starts your old DOS."
