Getting Win95 to run on Windows VPC

Thanks to Derek Wong, he’s compiled a lot of info on this and posted it on his site.  He sent me an email a long time ago with his results and I just got around to updating my WWADW site.

Links to his procedure and the patch:

    I managed to install Windows 95 without any patches using the old methods used in virtual pc 2004 and 7 it works fine on wvpc you just need to use the windows 95 boot cd image instead of the floppy boot image

    iso boot cd image

    img floppy boot image

    anyways the new windows virtual pc kind of lags and is really only useful for XP mode therefore i recommend sticking with vpc 2007

    and sorry if my spelling or grammar isn’t that great

    good post 🙂
