search an howto go back to windows95

Post by comparotf » Tue Jan 22, 2019 4:30 pm

I need for some activities to go back to the real windows 95 but ...
... with a modern laptop.

is that possible?

(all my experiences to do that in the last years did fail due to the missing drivers for the new hardware.
next problem would be, that windows 95 usually formates all the hard disk so, that it is only possible to install it on an empty hard disc / PC)

why windows 95? I have to use a wonderful app using the possibilities of memory residence in the same memory room for all app's and that is the new windows don't are permitting that (goal of that application: catch all the entries of all other applications and process them differently on the way. the application is especially able to translate the words out one dictionary, for ex. English dictionary, into the words of a different dictionary, for ex. Esperanto dictionary).

VirtualBox, VMWare or QEMU. Nothing more to say.

thank your gonzo, I did of course also try those ways, but they don't install some drivers in Win95!

no, the only proper way would be a hard ware delivered with all drivers for actual an OLD os's!

the new reinstallations CD's / DVD's generally do not that and linux transmit nothing of the good linux drivers to the emulated system!

I see you are probably German / live in D. the software is "ways2" or ways or witch (witch only for the old IBM-DOS. the in the past important German dealer Highscreen did buy 1.000.000 lizenzes from the programmer, the genial programmer, dip diving specialist and piano virtuos Hannes Keller (CH! see Wikipedia, there are very interesting pages on Mr. Keller) and each Highscreen PC did have this package in it but the most user did never understand how to use it because it is magic... there is no actual system being able to reach to it in that functionality....

Here are your drivers. Should do the job

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

The last time I installed windows 98se in a virtual machine if I remember correctly I got better results installing windows 98se in a VMware player VM the problem I was having with VirtualBox is if I remember correctly was getting the video driver working

Virtual machine will work for sure. Another ways...May be they are, but I didn't see them.

you can try it from an online virtual machine. I hope you know how virtual machines work and how can you install Windows 95 on it.

Regards,
Lewis
