Your definitely on the right path. 

I think for anyone with a requirement to run legacy Operating Systems or
8/16 bit application it is the best course to follow rather than looking
for hacks or emulation software.

Time permitting it would be worth you documenting your experience as it
could assist other legacy door users and perhaps should be a tech note in
Hectors knowledge base.
