Use one of these tools to make a bootable floppy, and from there you will be booted into a DOS environment, and can browse to and execute the setup file on the same (or different) floppy.

Ok thanks guys, but i was just wondering, windows 95 will be rather slow on the vintage PC Hence why i wanted to go back to its original OS... But it seems the internet is endless, but finding stuff like that must be difficult

A minor thing that you may have already noticed, the auction above is for 3.1, not 3.11.
Hell, MS doesn't put any effort into protecting ANY windows in my opinion. There's actually speculation that they let people pirate it so that it's more of a common platform.

You need MS-DOS 5 or 6 for Windows 3.1. And Windows 3.1 and MS-DOS do NOT need a product key. They just give you a warning from my memory.

Okay, here's what you need to do:

1. Sign up at Vetusware.com and try to find MS-DOS 6.0 or 5.0, and Windows 3.1/3.11/WFW 3.11
2. Install DOS on the machine (no product key required)
3. Install Windows over DOS (no product key required)
4. ??????
5. Profit!

Note: you will need something like winimage to write the .img files to floppy disks.


I AM TEH WINDOWS 3.X MASTAR!!!
