MS-DOS 6.22 works in any plataform, (except an PC-XT), so you can install it on a 386. It runs better, have better support and enhanced enviroment. You should try to install Win3.11 on the 386 PC, both systems -DOS & Win3.11- occupies only 20-30 Mb.

Greetings,

Incorrect! you can put dos 6.22on your puter.

The only thing that would read 1.44M disks was a drive from another Compaq.

Meanwhile, here's another way out:

1) Install DOS 6.22 on another PC and boot it.

2) Format about 10 disks in your own 720k drive

3) Use the SYS command on the other PC to make one bootable

4) Copy all the DOS files onto the disks

5) Boot your own PC from the 720k DOS floppy

6) Use SYS to put DOS 6.22 onto your hard disk

7) Copy all the other files off the floppies

It's no use copying files off the DOS 6.22 floppies onto 720k disks because most of them are compressed and you have to run the Setup program to get at them.

Incorrect again! I have a compaq 386 and the setup disks work just fine on it. Yes, compaq has it's own restore disk....BUt you can install 6.22 on it also if you wish too!

Just reboot with setup disk1 in drive and go from there.

What the hell are you talking about ?
Noone has mentionned Windows XP until you did ~~
If you don't know what a PC-XT machine is, there is no use to reply something irrelevent.
And in addition, there is no use to up a thread after 2 years.

idea Re: dos upgrade

Well stated Constance.....

If he doesn't know what a PC-XT is, (and it sure as hell won't run Windows XP) he's a 13 year old or was born a long time after 1982.

Default Re: dos upgrade

I just installed 6.22 on an XT. Don't upgrade. Erase everything then do a fresh install.
