DOSBox: Run Windows 98 on Your Symbian Mobile


Now it is possible that you can use Windows 98 on your Symbian S60 mobile phone. With a software named DOSBox, you can easily run Windows 98 successfully  on Symbian smartphones such as N95 and Nokia 5800( 128MB RAM required).

How it Works

  • First Download DOSBox latest release from here [link]
  • Create a directory in your phone memory card e:\dos\windows\’
  • Extract and copy all files of Windows 98 in this directory
  • Now create a directory E:\data
  • Install DOSBox in E:\data and set this path in dosbox.conf file
  • Modify image mount path in dosbox.conf as ;

Imgmount c e:\cdos\win98\w98.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,16,518
Boot -l c

(you can modify or add image mount path by opening dosbox.conf file on Notepad)

  • Run DOSBox and enjoy Windows 98 on your Symbian mobile

Note: It will not affect your Symbian OS because it is just an emulator and not an installed Windows 98
