Picture of How to create a MS-DOS 6.22 VMWare image?

MS-DOS is... I wouldn't talk, It's too long story
So let's get started!
You need:
Windows, Mac OS or Linux(Linux has VMWare too)
Intel VT or AMD VT technology in your processor(required)
(don't worry, all new laptops and computers have it)
VMWare Player or another version(VirtualBox will not work,because MS-DOS floppies are unknown for it)
MS-DOS 3x floppy installers: <-- All disk images are original(imma pirate ;))

Step 1: Creating a Virtual Machine

Create new machine and set type to other -> DOS
You can see settings on picture, except floppy
If you're a blind, read configuration:
32MB memory
Processor:same ### NB! Turn off binary translation! or your computer temperature will rise! ###
1GB Hard disk SCSI
CD\DVD: auto detect
Floppy: Use MS-DOS 6.22 1#
network: NAT
sound: same
display: same

Here are the screenshots of it working (have added networking)


Hi Loughlan,

I wonder if you can help me. I have my WFWG disks from my old Gateway 2k computer I purchased in the 90's. My Disk 6 is corrupt and will not read. Can you help me out with Disk 6?

https://db.tt/Martxjbr here you are :) Zip file what contains Disk 6 (and other disks, in case they won't read too)

Wow dude how the hell did you get networking!? That's nice!

I remember when I tried to get networking on Win3.1 under CVS-DosBox

If anyone is interested, I found bunch of utilities and drivers for Win3.1. I found alse WFWG! Dropbox link(I think I never delete those):

Awesome post. one problem, disks 2 and 3 for Norton Commander are the DOS disks 2 and 3 images. Any chance you can correct this. Also I have Laplink 4 if your interested.

Nice work! Great one!

Only issues, Files for the 2nd and 3rd Norton commander disk seem to be the DOS installers.

Also instructions as to how to add mouse support from cutemouse not clear. Couldn't get mouse working

Would love to get Windows 3.1 instructions as an additonal.

run "ctmouse" command. It should work if you copied it into c:\DOS
Win3.1 tutorital is coming soon :)

Got mouse working already, copied and added to autoexec.

Have also added win3.11 (with networking)
