Hi all,

I really want to install and try out Windows Chicago build 58s, but I don't know how exactly to do it properly. When trying to do it in VirtualBox (common error, I now know) I kept getting a blinking cursor after the boot screen showed up. A few posts on here said to do it in PCem, but it seems to be way too slow for my liking.

So, my question is, how have you guys successfully installed this build in the past, and what emulator and configuration has yielded the best results?

Just use 86Box and set it to emulate a machine of its time (roughly like a 486DX).

Why ask for advice if you're going to ignore it then?
