Windows 3 for XBox

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Title explains it all. I'm trying to track down this old package I saw on ISOZONE once. I had it installed on my box before and now can't use the machine it's currently saved onto. Was hoping someone here had/used it. Thanks!

I've been trying to track down files similar to what you're asking for @Magicaldave. I'm really looking for windows XP but I'm also interested in any other PC OS that i can find for xbox. Every resource points back to The ISO Zone.

I took a look at this last night on my system and found something called “Windows 3 versions” that didn’t boot shortly before I started an HDD clone. I’ll come back later once I can crawl the files and report what I find. I’m probably missing something. 


I’ve read various tuts online about running Windows 98 but can’t locate any of those files. 

As far as Windows XP goes, I *have* seen that running on an upgraded Xbox in DSL via QEMU but it ran like arse.  Plus the original uploaded has never explained how to do it.

So basically it seems like there aren’t a ton of solutions to this. I hear Win3 can run on DosXbox, so i May try that. I found the files on my hdd were literally just all the different versions of Win3, nothing too useful  


XP on QEMU seems kind of silly on a stock console. 


Win95/98 seem as if they were possible at one point using an app called “98lite” and more QEMU. However, I cannot locate the files required for this. More exploration needed.

If you wish to use Win 3.1 with Dosbox you can start with Exo Win 3.1 Collection, it works pretty well and you can then adapt it to your needs

      Hey guys! 
      New here and wasn’t too sure where to put this.
      I recently purchased a TSOP Xbox from eBay, the issue I have is that I’m playing it on my flat screen, but it keeps stretching games into a 16:9 aspect ratio and it is KILLING me.
      i have done everything from setting the setting in the original menu to normal and 480p and nothing higher, to changing the Setting in the multiple software on the xbox. 
      Any one got any suggestions to help stopping this stretching? It’s really annoying.
      i did manage to get it into 4:3 but this was forcing it through the framemeister and having that set to 4:3.
      Any help will be appreciated, cheers guys!
