My previous version of windows when loaded on a machine which was formatted with dos 6.22 gave me a option of booting from dos 6.22 as well as dos 4 (of win 95) when i press the F8 key.
Can U pl. tell me if the new version of win 95 does not support this or is there a special proceadure?

Dear Mark2150,

I had done this on the previous version of Windows95 (I would not be in a position to tell exactly which version it was) The problem is :
1. if dos 6.22 & win 95 cannot co-exist then why should the screen include the option "load previous version of MS-dos" appear (When i press f8 before loading win 95)

2. When i select the option for the 1st time (After formatting my hdd with dos 6.22 & then loading win 95) it does boot using dos 6.22, but if i switch off the pc & next time make the same working i do not get anything until i transfer the system from startup disk to the HDD.

3. I have seen this working on another computer.

Windows 95 uses it version of DOS, V7. There's nothing that 6.22 can do that V7 can't so bite the bullet and use V7. This is cause of your #2 problem. Go with DOS 7, it's very fast and very clean. Why are you needing specifically 6.22?

Dear mark,
My friend wanted it & since i had done it before i thought i can do it again. Any way i'll have to work with dos 7 only. Thanks a lot for the response.
