Boot with msdos and copy etc?
NT workstation 4.0
single partition, with only NT 4.0 (NO ms-dos, well actually no bootsect.dos file put the comp has io.sys msdos.sys etc)
My question is how do i boot NT with a floppy then read, write, copy, erase, etc?
My plan was to put ms-dos 7.0 or up (btw where can i find this) on a bootbale floopy then run ntfsdospro.exe then access any files.
Do i need to alter the boot.ini file and add something like C:= "Ms-dos"?
I'm very confused can some one please help.
The only thing i have done right so far is change the BIOS setting to make it boot floppy , but NT just bypasses the floppy. Also do i need to format the bootbale floppy using a NT machine?
What abust the fact that NT doesnt boot to ms-dos how do i change that if at all?
I appreacite all help/suggestions. thx very much.
