    Anyone willing to share an .Img of any windows OS between 1.0 and 3.1? TPB let me down because of its flawed search function, so I'm going to need your help with this one.

    Thanks in advance :worthy:, sorry for this exotic request.

    IIRC... Windows 95 was the first Windows OS available on CD.
    Win 3.1 was issued on six 1.44Mb floppy disks- so there's no real single img file for anything older than Win95.

    a .img is a floppy disc image

    I know this because I installed MS-DOS 6.22 with .img-es in my VM.

    ...and if you meant that there won't be just one floppy, I know that :p

    All these image file extensions; .img, .iso, .vhd, .bin, .cdi, making you and me confused:confused::confused:

    I have WfW 3.11 in ISO form.

    Do you still need it or are you served?

    Try win3x.org. Has just about every pre-XP version of Windows as well as tons of software and drivers. The page itself is mostly in french but there's enough English thrown in to help you navigate. They also have most older versions of Windows available in multiple languages as well as beta versions of multiple OSs just for fun.

    Come to think of it, I remember seeing on the site some old copies of OS/2 from back when Microsoft had their branding on it as well.

    You can install all upgrade versions of dos and windows from a cdrom.

    for msdos 6.x, simply put all of the files, including io.sys msdos.sys etc into a directory, eg msdos622. use only 8.3 names.

    for dos 5, pc-dos, and windows, setup /a unpacks the files to directory, eg win311. msdos 6.x trick works too

    you make a simple boot disk, with cdrom drivers, base files etc. you can boot the cdrom from it, or simple diskette. dos and windows can be set up in any order, as long as you run the windows setup from dos booted from c:. The base setup might be by sys c:, then copy working base boot from disk or cdrom, then set up dos and windows in an order so the latest himem.sys etc is used.

    For the supplement files, these can simply be merged in with the dos files. Some files are identical, eg choice, expand, but the setup works just fine here. I have an .inf that adds dos622 into dual boot with win9x without reboot, that also preinstalls the supplement files.

    You can have several different dos versions on the same cdrom. I have, eg msdos 622, windows 3.11, wfw 3.11, win95, win98 and winme all on the same cdrom. The install disk is win98se, but you can use win311 as update check for example.

    Using something like extract from winimage allows you to unpack the disk images direct to the hard drive (eg c:t\install\dos622 etc) and run setups from the hard disk, without cdrom loaded.
