I'm teaching an operating systems class this fall and I thought it would be cool to run Windows 1.0 and other older Windows operating systems in a VMware box. Anyways, I installed DOS 7.0 (file system is FAT16) and installed Windows 1.01 on top of that. Booted it and Windows completely locked up at the blue Microsoft logo screen. Was going to try DOS 3.3 (I believe that is the DOS version that came with it) and the disk image I have (720KB) refuses to be written to a 1.44 MB floppy. How can I do this? I would like to boot from the disk so I can install DOS 3.3 if possible.
Has anyone tried to install Windows 1.0/2.0/3.0 in VMware?
