Hello Cael,

In Windows 7, you can use the new Windows Virtual PC instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

well thats goo dfor 98 ME and win2k and ndewer but trying like mad to get old "hobbist " os's like NT4, 3.5,3. OS/2 OS/2 Warp and 3.1 is rather hard as atleast all those except NT 4, require floppy based install or boot. and atm NT4 is even giving me hell

it keeps complaining that it cant create the directory \winnt

*edit* errrr doesnt look like it seem sto like an Dynamicly expanding HDD file. but the one main issue for the others is no Floppy access. and far as i've looked online thers no working Virtual Floppy drive for Win 7

You might see if creating a ISO of them using something like ImgBurn may work instead to use to install them with to the virtual machine.

the prob when it come sto say NT 3.5, and even DOS is the first disk will work fine but it'll continue to insist for Disk 2 or 3 and whatnot.
