Win 95 won't dual boot to DOS
Posted on 1997-12-04
I am dealing with a computer that has Win 95 (OSR2) which was installed without dual-boot capabilities. I want to be able to boot up in DOS (6.22). I have followed the instructions in the Win95 Resource Kit. i.e. Rename and copy DOS system files (IO.SYS, MSDOS.SYS, COMMAND.COM) to root of C: on computer. Also made necessary changes to Win95 MSDOS.SYS.
Now, I can still boot into Win95 okay. But, when I choose option 8 to the start previous operating system the screen displays the "Now loading your previous version of MS-DOS, please wait" and nothing else happens. Activity stops there.
What am I missing?
