When creating a virtual machine with MS DOS (or PC Dos) then you'll notice that there are a few issues.

The first major issue being that the VM will run one of your cores with a high CPU. The reason being that MS DOS did not idle your CPU when it wasn't doing nothing, so instead of having a VM that uses no CPU when not doing anything you have that 1 core going nuts.

The classical way to resolve that is by installing DosIdle.
