Nostalgia: Installing Windows 3.11 in Vmware Fusion


The first computer I had purchased in 1993 had windows 3.1 as the OS.  So I thought today I would give it a try on Vmware Fusion.  There were a few steps to getting this installed in which you can find some good youtube videos. The first step is getting the MS-DOS 6.22, is what I used, image file.  Just go to youtube and put in this in the search box; How to install MS-DOS 6.22 as a Virtual Machine.  Once you get that installed properly, then when you boot to the hard drive, you change the directory(Example: R:\).  Then I typed in “setup” and that took me to the Windows 3.11 or Windows 3.1 installation.  I also installed Windows 95,Windows 98, Windows ME, and Win XP.  But I digress.
