Happy new year everyone!
I'm trying to install Terminator 2029 from its original disks, and INSTALL.EXE causes an immediate machine restart. My CPU is Intel Xeon W3520 2.67GHz, so definitely not your good ol' 386 😀 However, I tried a VirtualBox DOS setup and resulted in the same behavior. Finally, DOSBox 0.74-3 also suffers the same.
I recall reading somewhere that this executable is using undocumented CPU instructions that weren't supported by later CPUs. I'm hoping someone here might have some insight or know of a patch... otherwise I can't see how I can install this game properly. I will have to revert to some pre-installed copy, which isn't the end of the world of course... but a man can at least hope? 😀
