Win 95 B 216 Timebomb Fix?

Post by Meow_2004 »

When I run Windows 95 Build 216, after setup, I keep getting a this product has expired, etc. etc. I tried changing the date through MS-DOS, that didn't work.

What should I do? I'm using 86box using the Award 430DX VX PCI Machine.

You need to disable the local time option, then change the date in cmos of the machine.

You enter the cmos setup like you do with real hardware, for example, using the del key once the machine is running.

You must disable time synchronization in 86Box Settings, after that, it doesn't matter whether you change the time in DOS or in CMOS Setup, the changed time will be kept.

You must deactivate the time synchronization in the 86box options. and the same will also work for other betas.
