  • Thanks. At a glance, I can't get it to run in VMAC, Basillisk, or PCE-Macplus. It crashes before the program starts. I am wondering if perhaps this is copy protected? What did you use to image it? If you used a real Mac, did you verify that a dup…
  • Windows 3.1 was never released on CD-ROM. If you have an ISO, it is fake garbage and we don't need it.
  • Absolutely, that is one we have been looking for. We don't have an automatic upload system, so contributions need to be placed on a file host like dropbox, google drive, or mega. You can post a link here on the forum, or send me a Private Message…

  • I had an ABIT motherboard that was doing that. But I'm having a hard time remembering exactly what I did on that one. Or perhaps I didn't get it fixed. This happens when something goes out of spec, and fails when the machine is cold. But when it …
  • Here are a few: question: What do you understand by Microservices? Answer: Microservices or more appropriately Microservices Architecture is an bullshit buzzword that some marketing wiener made up. It another term for something that has been a…
  • Split the topic off. Voyambar, he is not a bot. he is a member that has contributed quite a bit. I could ask if YOU are a bot. It is hard to tell these days with bots getting smarter, and people getting dumber. Mr IBMPC5150 does not write English…
  • Some were duplicated disks, not factory originals. But copied with a tool that duplicated the copy protection intact. Worth archiving, but not ideal.
  • Technically, it is possible to get to 16-bit mode from 64-bit mode – Wine does that for 16-bit applications. (or at least did, I have not checked recently) But still, it is different enough that MS did not port the NTVDM, or some of the hacks needed…
  • Most of those are on a nice little website called http://www.winworldpc.com . :P BTW, don't bump ancient topics without a good reason.
  • Moved to site issues. You would have to talk to Duff about it. Not sure what the best way to contact him is. It looks like we may have lost a mirror recently, but I never got the memo, as usual. I normally add files directly to the Rickey serv…
  • Unless Calvin changed something recently, it is not possible for normal users to change their e-mail address due to the way it is linked between the library database and the forum. I have no idea how you managed to sign up with a "fake" e-mail ad…
  • If it is that much trouble, then by all means, it is time to move on to something else. If you really want a working camera of this model, another one will probably turn up on eBay for a few bucks eventually. It's not worth the frustration, unless t…
  • A quick web search for that error describes a number of IBM machines that, for whatever brilliant reason, do not default to having the hard drive in the boot sequence. Go in to BIOS or whatever setup and change the boot sequence. Typically boot s…
  • Since you have to be a complete idiot not to be able to get FTP access over there, I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that any further discussion on this matter won't go very well. Topic locked.
  • @Carlito512 said: If DOS starts from the HDD, then the larger drive is damaged. If not, then maybe grandpa is near to be death.. Since you never did try cleaning it with MAXLLF, it may still have crap in the boot sector. But I guess we w…
  • Holy crap, we went over this in your other thread. Do not extract files from inside .IMG files. Use WinImage to write the whole image. Do not extract files from inside .IMG files. Use WinImage to write the whole image. Do not extract files …
  • Ah, nice catch, I hadn't noticed that. That would strongly suggest that it has some update. The version number looks like it is on a sticker, so they probably re-used existing disks. (I wonder if they fixed it to run on an AT, and if it is still cop…
  • The crazy thing is there was a complete Visi On set a few years back that sold for almost nothing. (Seller should have set a buy-it-now price rather than starting bidding at a low amount) BTW, despite how the disks say "1.0" it would be good to v…

  • Well, comspec won't help you if your hard drive is still borked. MAXLLF (only run for a few minutes) FDISK (from DOS, create one 2GB partition) FORMAT C: /S If this does not work, then your hard drive or computer is broken.
  • Cool. Hopefully it is in good condition. The same seller, juliansrecords1 has a pile of really cool and uncommon (although crazy priced) software packages.
  • that would probably be in your c:\autoexec.bat file. Edit it with a text editor, and if a line "set comspec=a:\command.com" exists, either change it to "set comspec=c:\command.com" or just delete the line. Note that this environmental variable is…
  • Fixed the tucking fypo. Thanks for pointing it out.
  • Dyslexia soup fixed, including the URL slug.
  • I'm fairly sure your computer does not support LBA addressing required for drives larger than 8GB. Without a drive overlay program, disk tools will report the total size of the 120GB hard drive as 8GB (or ~4GB on some machines). MS-DOS 6.22 does …
  • The first disk should be one. But perhaps I was not clear enough. DON'T BOTHER manually setting the label. Just open the IMG file with WinImage http://www.winimage.com/ (shareware, just nags if you aren't registered) and instruct it to write the …
  • If I recall correctly, the volume label must be "DISK" followed by 6 spaces, and then the number. But you would not have had that problem if you wrote the disk image with WinImage. Never, EVER, use 7z, zip, or RAR archive tools to open an IMG …
  • There is plenty of good, helpful information in this thread that will lead you to a video card you can use. If you wanted drivers for your current card, which may or may not be available depending on its vintage, you should have answered the ques…
