Old OS's on modern PCs: Win95 and DOS
Posted on 2013-06-11
I have a client who's super old computer finally gave up on him and he is getting a new one. I didn't really pry to much on why, but he wants me to install Windows 95 and DOS on his new computer (in addition to win7/8 that it comes with).
The oldest OS that I am familiar with is WinXP (I know not that old, but neither am I).
Is this possible? Will modern hardware run such antiquated stuff? Are their drivers? How does it install? Floppys?
Better yet, is there a way that I can download what I need and virtualize it without actually having to partition a hard drive and install it?
I am really out of my element here!
