Virtual PC - Loading Operating System
Posted on 2005-04-27
I would like to load and run Win 95 or Win 98 (pre-SE) in Virtual PC in order to run some legacy software. My problem is I recently cleaned the shelf and diposed of some of the old software. I now have a DOS boot disk, a Windows 95 Upgrade CD, and a Windows 98 Upgrade CD. When I boot form the DOS disk I get an A: prompt and can not get the Win95 or Win98 CDs to load an operating system.
Can anyone suggest how I might get either WIn95 or 98 to load from the Upgrade Disks. I obviously have disposed of the full versions as I cleaned the "shelf". At the time I did not recognize the need to run this legacy program, or even recognize that Virual PC would serve the purpose.
