I have a backup of c:\*.* of a Win95 machine made in 1998. I need to boot this image. My thinking is to build a Win95 virtual machine, then replace its Windows and Program Files folder with the contents of this backup.
Is there any technical reason I shouldn't be able to do this?
Does anyone have any experience building a Windows 95 Virtual Machine under (preferable) MS or VM's products? Any snafu's or problems to expect?
I found this link on the MS site: http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2005/02/15/372846.aspx
and the VMWare docs http://www.vmware.com/pdf/GuestOS_guide.pdf
seem to make it sound possible.
I have an urgent interest in building a Win95 VM with a several gig virtual hard disk. In fact, I would even buy one with Win95 running from you that was already configured.
