Breaking the limits: Installing Windows 2000 in DOSBox-X

  • DOSBox was one of the first emulators I used when I learned about emulation back in the early 2000s. Originally developed with its own DOS implementation for running games and legacy applications in mind, newer forks like DOSBox-X and DOSBox Staging started to support “real” system emulation as well, providing similar functionality as PCem or 86Box.

    While originally only targeting MS-DOS emulation, DOSBox-X provides official support for Windows 95 and Windows 98.

    “Well,” I said to myself, “if they already support Windows 9x, I could try running Windows 2000 on it! It shouldn’t be that hard, right?!”
