BOOT INTO PREVIOUS MS-DOS WITH WINDOWS 95 (b)
Posted on 1997-10-29
A full setup of Windows 95 (b) ( no upgrade ) under FAT 16 has been setup. In the previous Windows 95 one could setup COMMAND.DOS, IO.DOS, MSDOS.DOS, AUTOEXEC.DOS & CONFIG.DOS and the Multiple boot would execute into PREVIOUS DOS . Now if the same is done, Windows 95 (b) does boot into dos but once the machine is restarted the system does boot at all and it has to be booted using a Win 95 Boot disk and the system files must be manually SYSed into C:\ again. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the command.com is in c:\windows in the newer version. Is there updated procedures for this configuration ?
