I have this crappy DX2/80 machine here and it lack but one thing to operate. Which happens to be the most important too - an OS.

A freedos release I have seems to be botched, anyway it did not run / install properly.

So, can anybody recommend me any decent equivalents? Free ones, preferably.

Hahahaaa, seems appropriate that Kon-Tiki would suggest something called Contiki.

To be honest, I'm looking for something with a DOS software compatibility. This PC is to be used only for old games, you know.

:blink: You know what, Anubis, you just solved the issue. k:
Altough I didn't suspect that a Microsoft OS of any type could be freely downloadable. :evil:

But this means that the scrapheap will work! :w00t: Yay!

1. This thing already caused me a lot of grief when I was trying to use it. :angry:

2. Anubis already helped me. :Brain:

@Omuletzu: I'll try 7.1. Already downloaded it onto my HDD.
