Dear Captien Bible. In my humble opinion, I do not believe the problem is in the format of the disc image and / or corrupted file of the game. From my experience, I believe the problem is the incompatibility of the game with the Operational System.

Thus, no matter what the format, the game will never be installed and / or run on the Operating System. Just as you will never be able to install The Witcher on Windows 95.

Just as you use DOSBox as an emulator to play old games, you need to use Virtual Machine to install old Operating Systems (VM compatible) to run old Windows games.

The examples:

When I tried to run the Wing Commander: Privateer game on Windows 98 SE, the Operating System rebooted abruptly;

I could not install the Largo Winch on Windows 7, but I was able to install it on Windows XP (using dual-boot);

I could not install the Final Fantasy VIII game on Windows 7, but I will probably be able to install it on Windows XP (using dual-boot);

My brother could not install Drakensang on Windows 8.1, but I was able to install it on Windows 7.

Maybe I am wrong, but at least my method worked for me.
