for MS-DOS you donot need to create any hdd-image nor to run setup.exe/install.exe etc.

The prerequisite for a MS DOS version < v7.1(v7.1 with FAT32-support):

1. a formated FAT12/FAT16 partition

2. a valid DOS boot sector

3. files for booting: io.sys. msdos.sys. command.com

4. files ptional: config.sys, autoexec.bat, himen.sys......

the simplest way to do that is:

1. putt a bootable dos floppy image on cs and make boot link to it

2. boot cd from the floppy image

3. type command: sys c:

(optional command for better compatibility: format c: /q/u/s )

4. type command: xcopy /h /s a:\*.* c:\

you can, of course, put step 3 and 4 in a batch file(i.e. autoexec.bat)

This could (or could not) be of help:

http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm

BOOTPART by Gilles Vollant can:

1) Write the bootrecord for ANY of these systems:

DOS 6.22

Windows 95/98/ME

Windows NT/2K/XP/2003 (and Bart's/PE)

2) this bootrecord can be written to either:

a) a file

b) the actual MBR

3) If you write the NT/2K/XP/2003 to MBR you can use the BOOT.INI selection to multiboot, providing that you have created the bootsector files for the other systems

This WONDERFUL utility has been developed with the aim of simplifying the process of multibooting, but it can be used for other purposes too.

If you want to "install" DOS, traditionally you had to boot from a DOS diskette and then issue the command sys a: c:

What if you need to "install" DOS 7.1 (the one that comes with Win98) and you haven't got a DOS 7.1 bootable floppy?

You need to make it.

Using bootpart, you can boot from a bootable floppy with DOS 6.22, copy (say from another drive, from CD rom or whatever) the three needed files of the 7.1 version:

command.com

msdos.sys

io.sys

then issue these bootpart commands (bootpart.exe must be somewhere):

BOOTPART WIN95 BOOT:C:

BOOTPART REWRITEROOT:C:

(the first command re-builds the boot record on the Hard Disk substituting whatever was before with a windows 95/98/ME one)

(the second command makes sure that io.sys and msdos.sys are moved at the beginning of the root directory)

similarly you can do it for MSDOS 6.22

BOOTPART DOS622 BOOT:C:

BOOTPART REWRITEROOT:C:

We use this appl since many, many, and many years. I know it very well.

But brucewong had another problem... so just post a answer of a hot topic, don't post a blind shot on a cold topic(silence since monthes!)

htc,

once again I find your attitude inexplicable and slightly aggressive.

I am sure you know perfectly (like most of us) how to make DOS boot, (and you explained it very well in your previous post).

I was pointing out a different way to achieve the same result.

I am very happy to know that you already knew about it, and that you have used it for years.

However the

don't post a blind shot on a cold topic(silence since monthes!)

could be (maybe) accepted if it came from an Administrator/Moderator, NOT from another member.

As you might gather if you actually READ the thread, you'll see that dvdbcn replied on the 21st of December.

This should mean that till that date dvdbcn hadn't yet resolved his problem.

The day after I posted what I thought could be an alternative method to the one you posted.

There is no use in dividing threads in cold or hot.

The good thing about this (and other boards) is that you search through it and hopefully find an answer to your question, even if it's on a "cold" thread.

Take it easy, bro.
