idea Re: creating drive

When you format a hard drive, the process removes all data there. No os = no working cd-rom drive without loading a dos driver for the optical drive. Any Windows Bootdisk contains necessary drivers to enable a cd-rom drive. Use it to boot the machine and your optical drive will work (if you select "boot with cd-rom support" in the resultant menu.)

No, you don't have to install DOS 6.22. You only need a floppy disk containing the boot files and dos drivers for the drive. Like I said earlier, any bootdisk will do the job.
