Sure, no problem :)

Virtual PC is a self-contained system, as such, it starts off with a fake hard drive with nothing on it.

You would need to burn a CD or use floppy disks, as you would need to do if you had a 2nd computer.

The Command Prompt is a half-knocked DOS emulator that Microsoft generously provided for some degree of convenience. But it cannot be tweaked to work like a real DOS system because of XP limitations (like lack of d...

And 1 GB would be able to have seemingly endless movies, games, etc. And 1 GHz could power a supercomputer. This doesn't really make any sense... whatever...

Perhaps the laptop's video system (or driver) may not be compatible.

Try upgrading the video drivers on your laptop (if you can).

Well you can get FreeDOS or OpenDOS/DR-DOS 7.xx for free. http://www.freedos.org http://public.planetmirror.com/pub/drdos/ Backup everything from the F drive onto the C drive (or burn it on CD/DVDs), format the F drive as FAT32 (or if it is less than 2 GB, format it as FAT/FAT16). Put the game on F:...

Since by default, the NTVDM receives 1 MB from Windows XP's memory management, and also, since Carmageddon is a 32-bit game, DOSBox and the Command Prompt/NTVDM will not work well with it. DOSBox is not very good with 32-bit games yet, and Windows NT/2000/XP have trouble with 32-bit DOS games in tha...
