Why does Chicago Build 58s Setup give an error message when later versions of Windows are present, and can this be fixed? I need to install Chicago Build 58s for the Chicago Build 34 mimic I'm trying to create.

Because it is meant to be installed as an upgrade to an existing, previous version. You can try to rename win.com and winver.exe from your existing install, maybe this will fool Chicago.

everybody thinks that, but that isnt true! use the bootdisk and you can install it without any DOS installed before!

I'm sorry but that won't work. If there is no Windows installation on your PC's hard drive, it gives an error message when setup files from later builds are present. I tried deleting my Windows installation once to try to install it but it still gave an error message.
