what I did:

create a new virtual box machine with 512 MB disk
use FD12LGC.ISO to boot the machine.
boot machine.

'Unfortunately, this method of installation is not supported on this
hardware platform. Please try a different installation method.'

Welcome to the FreeDOS 1.2 operating system.

some remarks though:

windows (or any other multitasking OS).

don't install this.
