I'm trying to install windows memphis build 1400 on vmware but I'm not succeeding in any way. At first it showed me a red error screen and after solving this problem when I arrived at the desktop the windows explorer didn't start giving me an error. I tried to install it from ms-dos, to update it from windows 95 in different ways but nothing. Can someone help me?

P.S. Excuse me if I make some mistakes in writing but I'm Italian :)

Use 86Box or PCem, they emulate an older system so they are capable of installing Windows 9x builds with no problem. VMware tends to have problems when installing Windows 9x betas, especially if your host PC has an AMD processor and you're using VMware 14 or up.

The Red Screen of Death error you're receiving is because you don't have APM and ACPI disabled. Early builds of Windows 98 has buggy ACPI support and tends to crash when it's available. Disable ACPI and reinstall again.

About the so called "red screen of death", you have to disable APM, ACPI and whatever form of power management it is. Also, make sure to disable hardware virtualization. The main problem by the way is that running older OSes such as Memphis or Windows 95 on programs like VMware on a modern PC is becoming more and more difficult, so rather than using a virtualizer like VMware it'd be easier to use an emulator like PCem or that 86box, since they're gonna emulate quite accurately an old PC and your chances of getting errors are very low. If you really want to stick to a virtualizer program, then I'd recommend Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, but if you're running Windows 10 you're out of luck I think. Setting up emulators like PCem could seem confusing and annoying at first, but after all you'll see that it's quite simple and worth it.

Please use VPC2007 if you're not using Windows 10 64-bit as the host.
First, install the build from a Windows 95 OSR2 Bootdisk, after first stage, boot from the diskette, type SYS C: then reboot to HDD.

No, certainly don't use 12 years old virtualization software. Virtual PC 2007 deserves to rest in peace.

I respect your opinion but on Windows 7 and on a 6th gen. Core i3 it still does the job quite well. It may suck for most NT 5.0 builds and some Windows 95 builds, but it's still an useful tool, at least for me, and for some other people too, I guess.

He's only out of luck if he's using 64-bit version. If thats the case, use 86box or pcem, as bf10 said.

That has to be the stupidest answer I've ever heard.
Why cant he? If you want to use 9x vpc2007 is the best option in this case.

PCem is ideal for emulating Memphis build 1400, it's not difficult to set up, use Machine: AMI WinBIOS 486.

Or, if you're using 86box, i'd recommend this config:
Config wrote:
Machine: [Socket 7 VX] Epox P55-VA
CPU: Pentium 120 Standard
Graphics: S3 Trio64 or ATi Mach64GX
32MB RAM
1024MB HDD
CD-ROM: ATAPI, 0:1, 4x

Probably 95 or XP
Code:
Config:
AMI WinBIOS 486
i486-DX4 @100MHz
64MB RAM
Sectors: 63
Heads: 16
Cylinders: 511
S3 Trio 32/64
Bus or Serial Mouse
ATAPI CD-ROM set to Secondary Master (1:0)


This is the config I use for Win95/Early Memphis installs. You just need a powerful host processor.

The config for my tower is in the sig.

The machine I use for Windows 98:
Pentium II @300MHz
128MB RAM
Not sure what graphics chipset but it’s whatever Presario CM2030s use
6 or 8GB hard disk using Mini IDE
IDK what else

Use 86Box/PCem. They work on pre-XP versions of Windows.
As for the red screen, it is an ACPI error, disable ACPI to get past.
