Is it considered on topic to ask about non-supported (legacy) operating systems on modern computers (like a computer manufactured a few years ago)?
For example, this question:
Recently, I installed MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1 in a virtual machine. The install went perfectly.
However, after making the .vdi a .img and booting from it, I can't open
WIN.COM. I get the Windows logo, but after that, it returns to MS-DOS: no error codes or messages.
What can I do to make Windows 3.1 launch? I can still use MS-DOS, even though it freezes after a few minutes.
My computer is an HP Pavilion 10 TS Notebook PC.
The computer mentioned is very not retro (it's about 5 years old, instead of, perhaps, 20 or 30 years old), but MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1 are retro (they were both made at least 25 years ago).
Would that question (and similar ones) be on topic?
