Hello.

Recently I wanted to try Windows 1.0 in 256 colours, made a PCem VM, set up DOS 4.01 on it. But, when it came to Windows, I don't know how to install a driver other than the built-in display drivers.

Offtopic Comment
Windows 3.x has much better 3rd party driver support.


Can someone write a tutorial, please?

You need to use the driver library installer to modify setup disks.

What driver do I choose? INSTALL.BAT lets me choose only these:

1) Moniterm Viking I
2) Sigma Color 400
3) Tseng EVA
4) Video-7 VEGA Deluxe
5) Wyse WY-700 High Resolution Display Adapter

You need to use IM1024 to 256 colors, that has 1024x800 resolution, but there isn't in the list, so you need copy the IM1024.DRV and VMILO.FON files to Windows 1.0 setup disk manually (don't forget rename VMILO.FON to LOFONTS.FON (original LOFONTS.FON replace)). Next, you need copy the IM1024.GRB and .LGO files to the Build disk (disk 2), and thats all. In setup, select it on the display list. I also planning install Windows 1.01 to 86Box (after i reinstall Windows in my laptop) with these graphics.

Thanks, ToMi. I'm currently working on INSTALL.BAT patch that can help make this easier.
