Try using an older version of MS-DOS, such as MS-DOS 3.3. I heard that MS-DOS versions 6.00 and later arn't compatible with Windows 1.0x.

The best thing to do is:

1) Extract mouse driver from !!2.03!! and insert in first disk
2) Install MS-DOS 5 or lower
3) Install Windows 1 from floppy's
4) Choose the settings from 2 serial and 6 EGA >64K colour
5) boot at C:\Windows\Win.com

I tested it and it worked perfectly.

EDIT:
You can use DOS 6 but you have to do SETVER.EXE first.

Off course.
I am going to start making this in VMWare Workstation 5.5 and VPC 2007.

I have found a strange problem at use Virtual PC and Win 1.01.
If you at installation choose EGA> 64KB, then after save of text in the "write" program, windows are crashing. But if you choose "black&White" mode, all work stably.
But, however, windows correctly work in any configuration on my i386
