This is on 86box, build 1841.
I used a dos 6.22 boot floppy to partition and format the drive,but after accepting the EULA in setup, it hangs with a black thing in the middle of the screen and I cannot move the mouse.

What mouse have you set? If a PS/2 mouse is used in the Award 486 clone (Opti495), then it's the wrong mouse as that board doesn't support PS/2 mice.
Also, can you provide a screenshot?

I set Microsoft Serial Mouse.

Still, could you provide a screenshot?

Are you sure it’s Build 263 and not 275 or 224? Because build 263 sounds odd.

It was recently leaked by Overdoze.

Well, I've installed it on 86box, too, and works fine using the vision964 pci.

It might be the BIOS's built-in virus protection causing that. Go to CMOS Setup and disable it.

Still, you have to disable it or this issue would still occur. It even happens in RTM (I used the DMF version last time).
