DOS 6.22 3 disk setup troubles

  1. Hello,

    A friend of mine gave me a copy of the 3 disk set for installing DOS on a hard drive. For some reason the first disk will not boot and start the install. We have tried xcopy, copy and zipping and then e-mailing the contents of the disk. Still no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    You cannot xcopy, copy or zip a bootable disk. You have to make a floppy disk image, mail that and then write the image back to a floppy.

    Any idea where I can find instructions? First 20 hits with yahoo were a bust.

    Try winimage www.winimage.com
    It allows you to back up and create from back up floppies including MS Dos boot and other non-dos disks. It's functional shareware and one of the few shareware tools I actually purchase.
