DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1

Floppy Disks

Not going to work I`m afraid as there will not be any chipset or other important/required drivers available. Try running Linux instead. Go to the full post »

My old computer, an ACER Aspire, ran Windows 10 absolutely terribly. I have the installation floppy disks for DOS 6.22 (Microsoft) and Windows 3.1. Does anyone know if I could delete Windows 10 and then use an external floppy drive to install DOS and Windows 3.1 on that computer from my disks?
