How to Install Windows 3.11 in a VM

*(For Archival Purposes Only)* One of my earliest videos: A tutorial on how to install Windows 3.1x in a virtual machine!


What you’re watching is one of my earliest videos, where I show you how to install Windows 3.1x in a virtual machine, as of May 20th, 2014.

A little background: Before YouTube, I hosted videos directly on my website through something called the “Video Corner”, which was basically a page on my website that had a list of videos links and…that was it. At the time, I didn’t have a YouTube account and most of the work I did back then was just a hobby. It wouldn’t be long before I started hosting videos on YouTube the following year—the rest (as they say) is history.

Boy, where do I begin with this one? First of all, this was before I had a professional screen recording setup—my first screen captured videos were recorded and edited on a 2010 iMac, with the Screen Recorder Pro and iMovie apps respectively, with the built-in EarPods mic used as a microphone. Second, the quality has obviously not aged very well; the entire screen recording was done unscripted, I referred to virtualization software as “emulators” (despite the fact that they’re technically NOT the same thing), there’s no seamless transition between the Ken Burns effects (resulting in awkward cuts), and there’s out-of-sync sound issues that were never corrected.

But hey, at least it’s a tutorial that’s still somewhat relevant…right?!
