The DOS multibooting procedure between DOS, OS/2 and Windows 95 has became a wonderful project of mutibooting between these OSes under Virtual PC 2007. However, for one OS, I'm running into issues here. I have Windows 95 installed on the third hard drive. Using GRUB4DOS, I had to hide the MS-DOS hard disk image on (hd0) and the OS/2 Warp hard disk image on (hd1). I then mapped the third hard disk image where Windows 95 is installed on (hd2) as (hd0) and although the OS work fine, it's showing original drive letters, M, N, O and P as phantom hard drives and drives C, D, E and F using MS-DOS compatiblity mode file system. Here are some screenshots for proof of this issue: Windows Explorer showing drive letters M, N, O and P as phantom drives. Device manager listing drive letters M, N, O and P in the current drive letter assignment in System Properties > Disk drives. System Properties > Performance reporting drives C, D, E and F using MS-DOS compatibility mode file system. Here is the Windows 95 entry in the GRUB4DOS MENU.LST file title Microsoft Windows 95\n\n find --set-root /IO.SYS unhide (hd2,0) unhide (hd2,4) unhide (hd2,5) unhide (hd2,6) root (hd2,0) savedefault hide (hd0,0) hide (hd0,4) hide (hd0,5) hide (hd0,6) hide (hd1,0) hide (hd1,4) hide (hd1,5) hide (hd1,6) map (hd0) (hd2) map (hd2) (hd0) map --floppies=1 chainloader +1 Rather than taking the risk of having to reinstall Windows 95 on the third hard disk image, is there a way how to get rid of drive letters M, N, O and P completely? Hiding drive letters using TweakUI won't help since DOS and Windows File Manager will still see these drives.

See to me, there is ABSOLUTELY NO up to date browser that works on Win9x. By that I mean one that can render HTML5 and do banking. Right there, that should render Win9x as only being appropriate for offline use.

I have a problem here. I got as far as the first half of the setup phase when attempting to install the retail upgrade release of Windows 95 (v4.00.950) on top of Windows 3.1 under the latest version of QEMU (v2.7). When I restarted the virtual machine, Windows 95 throws this error message when attempting to continue Windows 95 setup: Simply copying the IOS.VXD file into the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32 sub-directly didn't help. Here is the current configuration used to attempt to boot up Windows 95 under Qemu 2.7: I'm wondering if this is a bug when attempting to install OS or not. Are there any workarounds on how to get the IOS.VXD error when attempting to start Windows 95 under Qemu? Thanks. (I'm sorry I had to find a way to use quotes and clean up the messy formatting. That's why I had to edit this thread.)
