Want to try something new?

We are almost ready for the new FreeDOS 1.2 release! Please help us to test this new version. Download the FreeDOS 1.2 RC2 (“Release Candidate 2”) and try it out. If you already have an operating system on your computer (such as Linux or Windows) we recommend you install FreeDOS 1.2 RC2 in a PC emulator or “virtual machine.” Report any issues to the freedos-devel email list.

FreeDOS 1.1

FreeDOS is a complete operating system. If you choose to install this on your computer, you may overwrite the operating system you have now (for example, Windows.) If this is not what you intend, please stop now.

To use, download the CD image (“ISO” file) for the FreeDOS 1.1 distribution. You’ll need to write this to CD before you can install from it. Boot the CD on your computer (or PC emulator) and follow the prompts to install. If you need help, please read the FreeDOS Install HOWTO (this is for VirtualBox, but should apply to any PC.)
