I am planning on creating a dual boot system consisting of MS DOS 6.22 & Windows 95. In order to do this, do I need the original version of 95 or the upgrade version?

Thanks.

I think either one would allow for this, but not certain.

I don't remember that it matters.  I think the "upgrade" versions were OEM disks that had patches applied so you didn't have to download and apply them.

You need the original version.  The upgrade version looks for specific files from Windows 3.1x.  If it doesn't find those files the "upgrade" won't work.  When I used to work for MS years ago we figured out which files it was looking for, and copied them to a floppy to trick the upgrade version.  Unfortunately, I don't remember what those file were.

You are welcome. You should be able to find an original pretty easily.  I'd check eBay or Craig's List.
