I'm trying to install IBM PC DOS 4.0 onto a VMWare virtual machine. The machine keeps rebooting, gets to a blank cursor, then reboots again.
I've booted a Windows 98 boot disk just fine so it's not the drive. I then fdisked the drive, so I know it's not a partition problem
I got the installation disks today from a brand new, sealed box so I don't think there's anything wrong with the disks
Is there some sort of setting that I need to change in the BIOS that enables me to boot a PC DOS 4.0 installation disk?
I'm trying to get PC DOS 4.0 installed as a prerequisite for Windows 3.0. I work for an IP law firm that needs a version of Office running on a system that's running similar to how it would be running prior to 1991 for prior art. I'm not sure if FreeDOS would work for something like this
