    Ok, you need install DOSBox first http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/DOSBox_Wii then

    1: Place your OS into the DOSbox folder, it should be in .Img Format

    2: Useing your USB keyboard type C:

    You should get a screen that looks like this:


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Z:/

    Z:/C:

    C:/


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3: Type the folowing : boot (insert img name here).img --so if you had a W95 img, rename it to "w95.img

    4 Enjoy! if it says Error loading Operating System continue to step 5

    5: type Imgmount D (insert img name here).img

    6: Type: boot (insert img name here).img

    7: Enjoy! if that didn't work Drop me a line at the Discussion Page.

    I wasn't able to run it yet, I got a black screen after the Win95 logo, and the program hangs.

    Please share your experience, maybe I need change some settings =P

    I just tried Windows 95

    The first time, it ran Microsoft Scandisk and said a file was missing (Maybe I got a bad img)
    I rebooted and tried again. now it's hanging at a black screen. I'll wait a little longer

    EDIT:
    lol, just got the BSOD

    There's already info on gbatemp regarding this:

    GBATemp DosBox topic

    This topic title is very misleading!
    You can run Windows 3.11, but the change you run Windows '95 descent, or at a speed fast enough to enjoy it, is almost 0.
