[TS] Upgrading from Windows 1.0 to Windows 7 - Page 4

post #31 of 79
I remember booting into DOS and playing Family Fued and Oregon Trail. I also remember installing Win 3.1 using like forty 3.5" floppies.

When I had Windows ME, I didnt upgrade to windows xp when it came out until 2 years later. I was just so used to ME lol, even though the damn thing crashed like a blind man driving a car everytime. lol

If I remember right, its 7 3.5 floppies. I had to reinstall windows 3.1 many times, only because being 6-7 years old, you dont know why the system files are so important lol. Plus learning DOS has its bad side of setting the wrong settings.

I think my first was 3.0 but may have been earlier I really don't remember. This was a cool video!

Man this brings back some memories... I really wish he had put windows NT 4.0 on there because thats what I used to use rather than windows 95.... I still get nostalgic about NT 4.0 and run it in a VM from time to time just to remember how cool it was in its day... I was even able to play Duke Nukem on it.

The early Windows were separate from DOS (You had to buy both DOS and Windows). Win was the .exe for Windows, which most just added to the boot up .bat file. I think DOS 6.2 is the last version I have before integration of both.

Yep, I had a 40 meg drive and didn't think I would ever fill it up! It would have been nice if he would have mentioned that early systems didn't have mice or sound cards. Notes played through the case speaker and the keyboard was all you had to use back then. Video cards started out with 16 colors and took many years of progression to get to 16 million colors. And can you say 6 megahertz? Press turbo and you get 12 Mhz! I actually still own a 486 with turbo mode. We could talk 5-1/4" floppys too back then which I still have. I'm such a pack rat!
