Hello,

We have an old machine that is on running data collection.  We would like to migrate this machine to run in VMware as a virtual machine via VMware fusion.

This old machine is running DOS.  

Any best practices to migrate such a system?

Thank you!

Just clone the DOS hard disk using  a clone tool, e.g. Ghost.
