    Install Hyper-V and then install MS DOS. Windows hasn't been built on top of MS DOS for years. But is there really a reason why a command Window wouldn't do the trick?

    Easiest way to get DOS running is download DOS Box. It is a purpose built DOS emulator and comes with all the drivers it needs to run on Modern Hardware. It is also free.
