Install, Run Windows 95 98 XP on Android HTC EVO 3D

Power users love to play with their Android phones and often they experiment installing Linux flavors on their Android phones.

XDA developer mnomaanw has successfully installed Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows XP and Linux on HTC EVO 3D in a fairly easy process. To summarize, all a user needs to do is download the required software, modify a file or two and run the apk.  And it boots into Windows.

This Windows port for Phones is one of the best ever. It does fair justice to the hardware buttons, touchscreen by giving you fairly easy controls.

How to Install Windows 95, 98, XP on Android Phone: HTC EVO 3D

Pre-requisites: Windows 95/98/XP Image: ISO or .IMG. (IMG preferred and tested).
Step 1. Download bochs.apk [mirror] and SDL.zip [mirror]. Put SDL.zip on root of sdcard/
Step 2. Put the Windows 95/98/XP disk image .img/.iso [(need to change setting in bochsrc.txt accordingly (iso not tested yet)] of any operating system in SDL folder and rename it to “c.img”.
Step 3. Run Bochs apk. Let it boot (takes a while) and enjoy.

Note: Use this bochsrc.txt to use a folder called “HDD” on your sdcard as a drive in windows. Replace the original bochsrc.txt withthe one stated before. Further updates on xda thread.

Instructions for input controls are as follows:

  • To emulate touchpad on touchscreen and left/right mouse buttons on volume
  • You can also click touch screen to generate mouse left button click.(this does not work everytime)
  • Back = BackSpace, Menu = Enter, left-upper corner click generates TAB
  • left-lower corner click popups keyboard

    The article is not clear enough. The Win 95 img should be explained correctly. Its not the installation iso but a snapshot img of a Win 95 installation. After a bit of digging on the XDA forum I was able to run Win 95 on my Android. Thanks !!!
