I used to have Windows 1.0a.

Hope you still have a 5 1/4 inch floppy drive sitting around as that is what media it shipped on.
Dont remember if it was low density or high density though.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Have you tried a few local computer shops? not the major ones, the smaller ma and pa type shops? they may be able to find one/know where one is.

I have no honest idea, but a search of Google picked up this little Gem for me to Share?

It is a listing of M$ releases.


Rest of the Google Search is here.
