Specs: PC-DOS 6.1 & FreeDOS, Intel Core 2 Duo
So, last year I got an old Dell Optiplex 755 for free (Not using it to type this, because it has no internal antenna and uses dial-up) and just decided to install 2 types of DOS on it (PC-DOS 6.1, and FreeDOS.) My 755 is using a 1TB HDD (I had hooked it up to wifi for a while and downloaded some stuff on it, but because it only has 1GB ram on it, I cannot run much. It originally came with an 80GB HDD.

My questions are as shown below:

How do I install PC-DOS on a second partition?
How do I install Free-DOS on a 3rd partition?

Bigger question is: what's on the primary partition?

Windows 10 Pro. I want to keep that from being overwritten.

✔ Best Answer
If you have the hardware to run Win10, your best bet would be to stick with DOS-box. Remember, there's significant limitations on PC/MS-DOS and probably FreeDOS (never used it). If you want to stick with true PCDOS, find a lower-spec machine.
