Wikipedia says, "OSR1 was the OEM release that was identical to Windows 95 retail with Service Pack 1 applied". OSR2 is something very different.

According to this thread you can make a hard drive image of 503Mb. I tried it, it works. I thought this could be useful considering disk space is never enough, specially with Windows

I followed this guide and got everything working with my installation of Win95 in DOSBox, except all drives are in compatibility mode. Loading the Standard IDE driver for Windows doesn't seem to help. I am using ykhwong's latest version.

Is this normal, or is there a trick to make it 32-bit?

I already have a Win95 VMware VM. I'm not talking about that.

I'm surprised by your response DOSFreak since you have participated in Win95-on-DOSBox discussions before.

I'm not sure I understand your question? I just wanted to know if its possible to *not* have the compatibility issue running Win95. Yes, everything works fine.

There you are.

"compatibility mode" just means it's using int13.

It is not possible because there is no IDE controler in DOSBox only int13 support.

Also keep in mind that performance issues for real hardware may not apply with emulation, or at least not to the same extent.

I have been unable to get Windows 98 running through VMware because my boot disk is ... a disk! I made and image of it, but it still doesn't seem to boot right. That is why it would be nice to get a version of Windows 95 or 98 running on my Windows 7 64-bit system, but without CD support the DOSBOX version doesn't sound like much of an improvement.

Any advice?

DOSBox isn't meant for running win9x, neither with nor without cdrom.
