I'm wanting to build a 'vintage' PC to experience some older OSes. I'd like to install MS-DOS (with Windows 3.11), 98SE and XP on a triple boot on multiple HDDs with the following hardware: ECS P4M800PRO-M V2.0 Motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 (2.8GHz) 2x 1GB Corsair DDR2 sticks 4GB Segate Medalist (HDD for DOS) 80GB WD HDD (for Windows 98) 320GB WD HDD (for XP) 2x CD drives and a floppy PCI IDE\SATA card in case I ever need more HDDs Can anyone see any potential problems that I can encounter with this setup? (I am aware of 98’s compatibility problem with 512+ MB of ram and problems with 13
Hello, everyone! I have a problem here. I'm running MS-DOS 6.22 under Virtual PC 2007 with the Intel DC21140 packet driver and for some reason, the internet doesn't work when I set the first adapter to use Shared networking (NAT).

For a while, I've been experiencing ways how to run the MS-DOS operating system in both a virtual machine and natively. In this example, I created a MS-DOS 7.1 virtual machine under DOSBox and I linked the disk image in GRUB4DOS so that I can natively boot the OS. Here's how you can do it: INSTRUCTIONS 1. For hard disk image and proper CHS geometry support, download DOSBox Megabuild 6 (DOSBox MB6), if you haven't already done so. 2. Download the latest stable version of GRUB4DOS. While the latest version of GRUB4DOS is version 0.4.6, I wouldn't recommend constantly updating the bootloader. 3.
