NT/DOS DualBoot - DOS not running auto/config
Posted on 1997-12-07
I have NT 4.0 and DOS 6.22 both installed...Boots to NT just fine, and boots to DOS so-so. When I choose DOS, it just dumps me to a prompt with MINIMAL startup execution. The config.sys and autoexec.bat files are not even TOUCHED!
My temporary (it's been long enough to seem permanent) workaround for this problem is a boot floppy that boots DOS, and runs slightly modified copies of the startup files. It works, but is annoying, slow, and defeats the purpose of
I have tried everything I know, and everything that 5 other people have told me to try, and I still cannot get it to work properly :( I've probably tried 3 or 4 different lines in boot.ini, 4 or 5 locations for autoexec.bat/config.sys and/or autoexec.nt/config.nt and/or command.com, and a few other strange things ...nothin'
I have a friend who is using NT/DOS, and his works perfectly. We compared everything we could thing of and didn't find any settings that were different!
