I am trying to set up Windows 95 on a VM using Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 with a 8 GB VHD. Everything works fine until it finishes setup, but it when it tries to start Windows for the first time, it says, “While initializing device IOS: Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer.”
I have tried booting up in safe mode and have formatted the VHD and reinstalled it several times, but I can’t figure out why it won’t work. It worked fine once before, but the hard drive it was on went bad, so I have to set it up again.
Thank you for any help/solutions.
