Can not install Win95

Reported by: Axel Magard Owned by:
Component: VMM/HWACCM Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4
Keywords: win95 installation setup Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows

Description

My Win95 hangs when installation has started, right after checking the disk, when Windows attempt to copy first files for the installation. No error message, no progress. I have heard that Win 95 is not really supported but I am curious whether there are hints and tips available how to get it to work. My current VirtualBox version is 2.2.4, the problem also showed up with earlier version 2.2.0.

You can try to use raw mode (that is, System/Acceleration/Enable Vt-x/AMD-V) and see it works this way.

I don't think that enabling VT-x/AMD-V is going to work at all. :(

Do you have ACPI, IO APIC and Intel VT-x/AMD-v all turned off?

Also, is your hard disk image smaller than 32 GB and have you allocated less than 512 MB of memory and less than 8 MB of video memory to the guest?

I pointed variable to toggle, sure it shall be turned off :). I remember installing Win95 OSR2 on VBox around 2.0, if it's broken - it's clear regression.

Make sure that you have ACPI, IO APIC and Intel VT-x/AMD-v all turned off or Windows 95 won't install. I installed Windows 95 under the latest version of VirtualBox and everything went successful without any problems for me.

Turning off Intel VT-x/AMD-v solved the problem & the installation succeeded !

Still relevant with VBox 3.0.10?
