1: Place your OS into the DOSbox folder, it should be in .Img Format

2: Useing your USB keyboard type C:

You should get a screen that looks like this:




3: Type the folowing : boot (insert img name here).img --so if you had a W95 img, rename it to "w95.img

4 Enjoy! if it says Error loading Operating System continue to step 5

5: type Imgmount D (insert img name here).img

6: Type: boot (insert img name here).img

7: Enjoy! if that didn't work Drop me a line at the Discussion Page.

I have a Win95 CD, and I am not familiar with the .img format. How would I install Win95 then?
Install it to a hard drive and install your programs 
you want, then use a program to convert it to IMG format --Aujakev 16:22, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to hickjack your page =P I have problems running windows95, I have the w95.img file (about 197MB) not problems booting it, it's just I got a black screen after the Windows 95 logo screen, I tried freeing some space in the SD card but the problem persist. Do you change some setting in the dosbox config file? Maybe I need use a more "lite" Windows95 version? or maybe my .img file is corrupted? I've tried 2 different versions availables on the net.
