https://i.cubeupload.com/Z72egQ.gif for the screen shot/capture from my
brand new VirtualBox VM's 2 GB virtual HDD (already formatted and
rebooted from its virtual 3.5" bootable floppy disk) on my old updated
64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC. I am using the files from
https://winworldpc.com/download/67e2809d-c3a3-27e2-80ba-e280ba11c3a4 web
page. What's wrong? :(

Thank you in advance. :)

Off topic for vbox, but I did manage to get a Windows 95 instance
running on 86BOX a few weeks ago remembering dot-matrix printers. There
is a download link at the bottom of
