Please STOP starting new threeads about the same question.

There is NO answer to your question unless you provide some details and try to ask it properly.

This is simply nonsense:

hi ive been tring to load msdos to my hd but the version im using doesnt

dos 6 comes with it but dos 7 dont what can i do?


DOS 7 does have sys.com allright, and besides you DO NOT "need" SYS to "move" Dos or to "load" it.

Describe your current setup, how is the hard disk currently partitioned/formatted, what Operating System are you running, etc. etc.

For MS-DOS and Win9x, there is always http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm bootpart.exe. This will also move the files to the correct position on the fixed disk. I did a similar hack to pcdos.

Just for the record in the MS-DOS "family", ONLY 6.22 and earlier need IO.SYS as first file, whilst 7.x and 8.0 do not.

BTW Wendy, any idea/advice about this?:

NO! <_<

I mean:

Wendy evidently means:

Where have you read something to the effect of:

just copy all dos 7 to the hd and it will boot

? :wodoo:

Depending on your setup, you will need to install or create a bootsector (something that FORMAT /S or SYS.COM or bootpart.exe can do) to invoke IO.SYS or use a bootmanager capable of chainloading IO.SYS.

and can i ask a question about mkisofs.exe

Sure, you are perfectly free to ask it, the point is that if you insist with not giving any detail, you are going to get either no reply or a perfectly unuseful one, just like the ones you already got before.
