Can't use command 'dir' in Win98 CD from Dos.
Posted on 1998-06-17
I have had Win95A, and have now uppgraded to Win98 from
a homeburned CD.(I haven't burned it my self). I did the uppgrade from Win95 environment.
On this CD there is more programs than Win98, Win98 is in 'CD':\program\win98final\win98.
It works well except for one thing.
If I look at the homeburned CD in Win98 it´s okey, and if
look at it in a dosprompt in win 98 it's okey, I can use
"dir" to change directory and start files and so on.
But if I "Restart in MS-Dos mode" or start with a floppy
then all I can do with that CD is to goto the CD-root.
If I try to use "cd program" I got the meesages that the
directory doesen't exist, but I can see it if from the root
with "dir". If I try with another CD it works fine,just as it should, but not with that CD.
If it stays like this it would be a problem if I have to re-install Win98 from the floppy.
Why is it like this,is it a kind of proctection from MS,
or what ??
