Does anyone on this list know how to install Windows from scratch?
My computer at home apparently lost its FAT allocation files (I guess)
All I can get right now is a C:/ prompt but when I type: win that
gives me a "bad command" message.
What I know is that I am running a 4.0 version of DOS but I only have
diskettes for the 6.0 version in my desk drawers. Should I try to
upgrade the DOS first, then reformat the hard drive and then install
my Windows from a CD-ROM? The problem is also how do I specify my
drives? Should I first copy my autoexe.bat and system.ini on a floppy?
How do I make the boot disk?
Sorry folks, if no one can answer this is OK, I'll just "output my
computer through my windows" as once Paul suggested as a solution to
any kind of computer malfunctioning.
"If we don't succeed we run the risk of failure."
O! BTW. Never install the (in)famous Symantec's Norton Utilities on
They say that if you can get only two programs for your computer NU
should be one of them. That's a big lie!!! At work I got more freezes
in a couple of days since I installed NU than in my computer's entire
life, and at home I fried everything in only one day...
