The pc is set to boot from the floppy, no problem there. Yes, it POST ok but does not load windows, no beeps when I turn on the pc otherwise I would have checked the audio codes, error message is "No operating system found" but the problem I am having here guys like I said is creating the bootdisk, I am not concerned about getting to windows as I am doing this only to see if I can create a bootdisk on another pc and use it succesfully on the non-working pc.
As I have mentioned above when I double-click the exe file as per my instructions in my first post, the DOS window opens but closes immediately. Mr.Coffee, I just tried your method, copying the file from the desktop into the C drive and when I type what you wrote into the DOS prompt and hit Enter, I get this message
"C:\98BOT10A.EXE is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"
One thing I noticed was that C
ocumentsandSettings/Serge1 was the info in the DOS window, I am wondering if that is the "temporary" location of the file? If not, then maybe DOS is not being told that the file is actually located in the C drive? If so, then how can I change it? If not, then what else can I try?
