I'am trying to install Windows 95 in virtualbox. I have my windows disk, but have no idea deriving an iso file from it. My computer is an Alienware Area 51, AMD Athlon II x2 215 Processor 4G Ram, Win7 64Bit-SP1. I'm posting an error log and message. I need help.

Hi dittybop :)

You can use ImgBurn for this task. It have an option to create an .iso (image) file from a disc, so it could work. However, Windows 95 had a particuliar way of being installed, so I don't know if it'll be that straight-forward, but you should give it a try. I did found many tutorials that shows how to install Windows 95 (and even Windows 98) on VirtualBox. You should give these a look :)

Let me know if you have any questions.

Note: I think that ImgBurn still bundles OpenCandy, so it's your choice to delete that folder after or not.
