I already posted in VirtualBox forums, but no reply for months.

Anyone gotten to run Win95 in VirtualBox (or Chicago?)
I tried in 1.5.6 and 1.6, and it crashes after the bootscreen, only working on safe mode. :^)

Unfortunately it's unlikely to work anytime soon. I've noticed that the more recent versions of VirtualBox seem to be becoming less compatible with non-mainstream Windows OSes. I couldn't get a Longhorn build working on those versions either, so I'm assuming they've changed something that's broken the compatibility of the OSes.

Virtual PC 2007 is said to have no support for Windows 95 anymore. It's just sad this "out with the old, in with the new" philosophy. The old stuff is still cool sometimes.

It still works though, the only difference being that it now doesn't have Virtual Machine Additions.

Yes it makes sense that it still works and the lack of Virtual Machine Additions doesn't worry me. It's just the aforementioned philosophy that makes me sad.

VMWare are probably the best for supporting others. They still have the DOS-based VM additions as far as I know. They also support down to Windows 3.11, though you still need updates on NT4 and 95 to get VM additions.

I've never really used VMware. The only time I used it was to use it with OSx86 when I downloaded that deadmoo 10.4.1 image. After quickly realising the outdated-ness of 10.4.1, I downloaded the 10.4.10 OSx86 ISO by XxX and installed it native.

For NT4 just Service Pack 6 is enough.
Windows 95 works, the newest version (still in beta) has 2 discs, ''Pre-2k'' and ''2k and above''.

I have a driver avaible for the VMX_SVGA, on my site as Floppy and cd-rom

For Virtual PC 2007, if you want to install VMAdditions then install the VMAdditions from VPC 2004.
They still work.

@harry: No. "VirtualBox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."
@DjRob: It's not 95C, it's 95B Portuguese-Brazil. Willing to upload that...

Windows 95 (especially OSR2.x) has problems on fast systems (350+). If you get Windows Protection Error blah blah, download this package (made by M$ and AMD for AMD K6-II processors, but works fine on my AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ and maybe on Intel CPUs too). Then boot in safe mode and install AMDK6UPD.INF. If Safe mode doesn't work just copy ios.vxd from package to windows\system\vmm32\ (backup and overwrite original file)...

Windows 98 stuffed up on me when I tried to install it on a 2.8GHz Celeron. There was a hotfix by Microsoft that fixed this issue and it worked. Right up until I installed the GPU drivers. Then it died again. :x

@baso: It's NOT my problem, again I say. VirtualBox crashes just after the bootscreen disappears. Now I deleted the virtual hard disk... :(
And mine is OSR2.

It does work in Virtual PC 2007, but you forgot to mention that you need to turn off hardware virtualization
