DOS 6.2 has severe issues with partitions past 2 gigabytes and the boot area pushes the partitions down to the old FAT16 limits. This restriction will cause too many issues to be dealt with in these forums.
However you can always boot up a DOS diskette if you must. I do that all the time to update BIOS and such.
DOS is also "pretty darn close" if you press start, run, COMMAND.
Hello everyone - I have just given up on reinstating my WIN98SE OS on the mainly XPpro-run computer; I have transferred all the programs that I had there to the XP and adjusted what was necessary. Still, I do miss the old DOS. The question is: can you have DOS on one partition and the XPpro on another one? Does it involve double booting, or can you just switch around as you please? Can you install DOS after XP is already there? And if yes - are there DOS versions too old for that; mine is 6.2? Many questions but really one subject. Thanks, Amos.
