This works perfectly fine in PCem. Be sure to use a 386 or better emulator with less than 16MB of RAM, and an EGA display.
MS-DOS 3.3 or 4.01, along with a config.sys with at least 40 file handles.

Nope. PCem won't respond. Plus it still has Windows DR5 stuff in it. So back to VBox! (using IBM PC-DOS)

I tried, but it won't let me get past the 1st part of setup! Next try: PCem!

It turns out that (I am installing it.) it has a Windows 1.00 DR5 Based setup (Just no Hashtags at the left side of the screen). So I will let you know anything I notice!

This is one REALLY old beta! It's rare to find. I will TRY to install this on VirtualBox. Will let you know if successful or not, I'm expecting a Windows 2.0/2.1 based setup process!
All new things compared to Windows 2.xx will be listed!
