One man has captured every install of Windows from 1.0 through to 7 and....

Shared It with the world via you tube.....

The video details install processes and the UI for each version of Windows over the past 25 years and most importantly the upgrade process. The only exception is Windows ME, missing as you can only upgrade to ME or 2000 and not both. The video creator, Andrew Tait, used VMWare to install each version and started by installing MS-DOS 5.0 to prepare for the Windows 1.0 installation. Monkey Island and Doom 2 are both installed to test upgrade compatibility throughout the years.
Microsoft first introduced Windows 1.0 on November 20, 1985. Since the introduction of Windows, the operating system has dominated the personal computer market. Microsoft’s market share worldwide for Windows currently sits at 91%, which is significantly higher than its rivals, Apple and Linux. Windows has seen a number of key changes throughout its life and the video (below) demonstrates the majority of these.

I started on PC'swith OS/2
On the training course they said "it works just like DOS, so you won't have any problems..."
I had never heard of DOS
My first acquaintance with a "real" OS was with GEORGE II - but no one will have heard of that.
