How do you record screen in DOS

Hi there,

A friend of mine recently asked me to make a video tutorial on how to install Windows 7 to help beginners. I looked forward to his request.

Now, for making tutorials of programs in Operating System (Windows 7), I use Camtasia Studio, and it helps me a lot with its amazing functionalities.

The problem I am facing is that how do I record DOS screen?

I have searched through the internet and found some websites, they had captured DOS without any help of video camera, it was like , those pictures were taken like those in Operating System.

Is there any trick to do that? To record DOS?

Please reply on your earliest.
Thank you for your time.

Thank you bassfisher6522 for your kind reply!

This is a software to record games and videos etc.. But is this software able to record screen (DOS), when operating system is not running, like when you are installing a fresh Windows, you want to record the screen, how will you do that?

Hi Muhammadian

Run you installation in Virtual Machine like VitualBox, Virtual PC... You can then record with whatever software you use... even the DOS

Thank you centaur78!

I really though of doing so. I have even installed Windows Virtual PC from Microsoft and I have Windows XP Mode installed, too.

Now I am not really a total expert in Windows Virtual PC. Can you please take some time off your precious time and tell me a how to do that. Thank you very much.
