For installing Windows NT 4.0 for PC98 from DOS (winnt /b or files from the PC98 directory copied to the CHD), it hangs at the kernel load after inserting disk3

This is a stretch, but is it possible to get FreeDOS running on it?

FreeDOS expects an XT compatible BIOS so not without a lot of work.

I think you can, provided you have the PC98 specific version.

It's Megabytes, not Megabits. Other than that your translations look basically fine

It has been told that anything that DON'T access HW directly (i.e. uses int services) can be installed in PC-98xx.
Could be good to know what are these SWs but hey.

That's true for any non-pc msdos machine (FMtowns, Tandy 2000, Compis etc). PKZip is a good example.

If someone is interested on FreeDOS for PC98, I uploaded something on the FTP server (not public).
Tested on NP2/NP21.

Nice! Is there a way to obtain this without having FTP access?
And would this be capable of running PC98 erog software?
