I tried to recover the files using root directory entries found in the slack space instead of using SCANDISK. I am pretty sure DIAG.EXE was original. I am now trying to find the grabber file for the driver then I can try it on Windows 2.x.

The grabber and logo files are not of critical importance, I'd say, since many drivers don't even have their own variants and instead just use the CGA ones. The grabber is mainly used for winoldap, so you can try the driver without it.

You can download recovered driver files here: https://mega.nz/#!UANXVIAT!h3OR13TWCisi ... 2943KMtlLk

It hang the machine at boot screen when when using the same config as my Windows 1.04 installation. I guess the emulation doesn't cover everything for the Windows 2.x driver or the grabber file is important. The grabber file is so hard to recover because it is just a pure headerless binary file.

OK, I think that's squashed all the crashes and visual glitches, or at least the ones I can find. PCEM patch submitted.

Let's have this one in the Windows 1.x standard colour scheme for a change:

I think we can now say that the thread title has been answered: Yes, Windows 1.0x can have 256 colours.

It support 86Box?

Here is a response that actually answers the question instead of a link to a PCem romset.

Yes, 86Box does support the IM1024, based on John Elliott's PCem patch. It hasn't been committed to GitHub yet, but you can ask for preliminary builds at the Discord. You just need to drop the im1024font.bin file from a prior post to the roms\video\im1024 directory and you should see "[ISA] Image Manager 1024" in display settings.

Now, this is certainly interesting. I'll see if I give it a go sometime! Never thought 1.0 could run with 256 colors...

Not really, since the images were given to me directly by the owner of the floppies. But you can download the original broken images here, and the ones with files I managed to recover here.

Sorry for the bump but I just found my recovered copy of the Cobra drivers disk which I think is slightly better than the one above. I wasn't able to get anything to work but here it is: https://mega.nz/#!9BlU0Ija!Ueg41t_RAwnj ... 0zqPy924hA

Is there someone tried to run Windows 1.04 with 256 color in VMWare?
I think to develop drivers for Windows 1.x for VMWare because it is may very fast and fun with VMWare Tools (There is exist an open source of it for linux, and port it for earlier version of Windows will be amazing! :) )

Windows 1.04 with 256 colors is not possible on VMware, and VMware tools cant be patched to Win1.x. VMware also isn't good software to run older Windows than 95 or 3.x, i prefer 86Box for it.
