dos compatability/dual boot RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cant seem to get an older 16bit dos-based game to work or even load off cd even after using compatability troubleshooter.

    I have an older windows 95 disk and a windows 98 disk. How can I set up a dual boot with one of these older version.

    I have win-7 home premium. Laptop

    One thing you could try is booting into FreeDOS, then try to run the
    game from there. You can create a boot environment on a CD or USB stick.
