Virtual PC is PC emulation software that provides users with the ability to run various Windows operating systems and software at reduced speed, right on their Macintosh, including DOS, Windows 3.1, 95, ME, and 2000.

Slower PowerPC systems will want to stick with DOS or Windows 3.1. Faster PowerPC systems will perform acceptably with Windows 95 and 98. G3 and G4 upgraded systems will perform acceptably with Windows ME and 2000.

Boot Floppies

Installing and configuring Windows is usually a tedious and frustrating process. I've tried to make it easy by including various Windows boot floppy images in Macintosh DiskCopy format. You can simply drag these onto the Virtual PC "eject floppy" button, and Virtual PC will use (and boot from) them.

Windows 98 SE Boot Floppy Image

Also required, for maximum performance, are the Virtual PC "Additions" that provide full functionality of networking, drag and drop file sharing, faster video, etc. These are not required if you are using the pre-installed copy of Windows that came with your copy of Virtual PC.
