  • Hi everybody. I'm not shure if somebody still visit that discusion, cause I had to do with my other machines. But now I think to know the reason why there is no bootmanager. SomeGuy, you'v been using earlier the "drive overlay" term. I think I'v b…
  • Ok, I'll leave "site issues". After the installation with new perfectly working diskettes on the "new" drive is this the result ! Thank you all for the kind help.
  • Oh I'm verry sorry to border you, but everybody have other prefered tools. I viped out the drive with Paragon Disk Manager. It took 7 days. But probably this software is not the right one. I'll bring the drive next day to a guy who sells, and repare…
  • It's not. Is a WD 120GB, and there was few months ago a working WinXP SP3 on it. This was my goal.... Now I'v installed Win3.1, overwrite it with Win95(minimal), but grandpa still don't start from HDD. Now I'll put an other HDD in(40GB), make some s…
  • Ok, experts. My english is not good inough to understand exactly what you say, or mean. I followed exactly the above instructions and create another 4 diskettes. I installed again the OS on my IBM grandpa. The result is exactly the same. Grandpa don…
  • I have another problem with the downloaded images.Till today my IBM 300PL 6562-340 told me "No system disk" on start. Then I'v started with another version of 6.22, change the disk to the downloaded one, and format a new diskette with the /S option.…
  • comspec dos'nt work. Are you sure with autoexec? I'm just looking for ways to change system environment strings. It's not easy, cause the most commands I'v found don't exist in this version of OS. Or you need a program to find, and/or modifie them.
  • That's a good idea. I edited already config and autoexec files. They are rudimentary, and there's no such a line. If you look at the following picture, there is Boot Drive set to A. I don't remember a way to put this into config or autoexec files. A…
  • I'v downloaded MS-DOS Plus enhanced Tools few days ago.After few tricks I had 4 diskettes, and could do the install. (some files on disk 3+4 are corrupt or not present) But the computer won't start from HDD. In the MSD tool I found the "environment…
  • Dear SomeGuy, let's start with small steps. Read my answer to Jafir. The only difference between then and now is the DOS diskettes I used for the install. I removed the drive from the IBM machine, put it into my external bay, and start the same sof…
  • Jafir, the picture is 3 months old. As I said before, I'v deleted the entire disk with Paragon Disk Manager. It tooks 7 days. Then I put the disk back into the IBM, made a new partition (just one!), and formated it with my (30 years old) version of …
  • Everything was going fine. I made 2 new floppys and install 3 disks, exept the last file (wntools.gr_ was declared as damaged. I tryied to expand manualy, but i get "input file error", and "output file error". But that's no problem. The problem is, …
  • And by the way, WinImage can't open a 7z file. So I'v downloaded and installed it for nothing. Just useless spending time.
  • But by the way: the files you can download from your site are 7z. Not .img !
  • Of course is 7z free. That's why I'm p...d of to pay M.......t for something I don't even use. And now I'm doing what you just wrote. Disk 2 don't work no more. I'll do it with WinImage. Let's see the result.... I only formated all diskettes with 6.…
  • It works. 6 spaces. But now the C: drive is not present for the setup. I can type dir/p, and all files on C: (previous DOS and Win files and folders) are there. Setup try to formate the D drive, wich is my working space, including all the softwares …
  • Thanx for the quick response. Maybe you'r right with "never..." but now I have to pay M.......t one year for the UniversalZip, wich I needed just once to open a 7z file. Now I'v downloded the latest ver. of it. And I need that for installing BIOS, a…
  • I'm maybe 1 year too late.There's another way to create a 1.44 disk.I'v opened the IMG file with 7z file manager.Then go to the directory where the IMG file realy is.Open it (doubleclick), and you have only the content of the disk.Select all, and ch…
