I originally had a perfectly working RTM version of Windows 95 running in MDosBox and it ran beautifully. I’ve spent hours trying to get another version working after losing the image file from wiping my phone.
I have used RTM, OSR1, 2 and 2.5, boot disks Win95a, b and other types but I cannot get it working!
The error I have is “Can’t create drive from file” no matter what HDD size I install Windows on, and I’ve made sure to change the sector counts under -size parameter.
I’ve tried VirtualBox latest, 5 and 5.024 to see if it was that causing the issue but it doesn’t appear to be.
I installed Windows 95 in Limbo on my phone, but I’m not sure how to convert the qcow2 file to img – maybe that will work?
If anyone can help me that would be great!16. January 2023 at 11:19 #9995
did you update path to prefix? For example:
<games>/win95.img …16. January 2023 at 12:00 #9997
Hey! Was there an update I missed that changed the way paths should be written? As far as I can tell its pointing to the correct image, I’ve tried it both in root folder and subfolders.
The two main things that have changed is upgrading to Android 13 and updated MDosBox a few times.
I’m on a fold4 but not sure if that means anything.
The autoexe that I’ve tried are:
imgmount c /storage/emulated/0/Win95.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,32,520
imgmount d /storage/emulated/0/Drivers.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,16,64
boot -l c
imgmount c /storage/emulated/0/Win95/Win95.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,32,520
imgmount d /storage/emulated/0/Win95/Drivers.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,16,64
boot -l c
And I’ve made different sized hdd images as well and changed the corresponding -size parameter
I’m not sure what to do!16. January 2023 at 12:41 #9998
imgmount c <games>/Win95.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,32,520
imgmount d <games>/Drivers.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,16,64
boot -l c
Try above. But run welcome screen again and set “Games” folder to Win95 folder in the root16. January 2023 at 12:50 #9999
That worked thanks and now I don’t get an error, however now it’s just hanging on “Booting from drive C…”
Any ideas? I appreciate your help!16. January 2023 at 12:52 #10000
Hm, in game profile do you use “v74” or “svn4180” core? Can you paste whole config?16. January 2023 at 12:52 #10001
Got it! It works! Thanks so much. I wasted so much time thinking I was doing something wrong.
I forgot to change the -size parameter in the above autoexec you gave.16. January 2023 at 12:54 #10002
Google restrictions blocks human readable paths. I did it somehow with prefix, but who knows what will google bring in next updates. It is so much annoying.
