Hi Larry,

I am really sorry about the wait, just trying our hardest to get you up and running agian.

ok we are going to try something new here. please do the following.
you will need to do this on a machine that is not corrupted and has cd-rw drive, with preferably Nero burning rom on it or something similar, do not use windows xp cd writing program as it will not do what is needed.

first go to http://www.bootdisk.com and download the appropriate boot disk, with cd-rom support,for your sytem and put that on a floppy disk.

Next, please download DOS 9.0 beta from http://www.ibiblio.o...tions/beta9sr1/ and save it to a location you will remember. next open the cd rom software, I will use nero for this purpose as thats the one I know, next choose ISO image and then find the file you just downloaded. choose that file and hit burn.

Take that cd and floppy, then boot with the floppy disk, after that has finsished starting your computer put the cd in to the drive and do the following.

type d: or what ever your drive letter for your cd rom is
next type the following at the command prompt.

copy d:\Himem.sys c:\windows

copy d:\DBLBUFF.SYS c:\windows

copy d:\IFSHLP.SYS c:\windows

copy d:\COMMAND.COM c:\

next reboot, your computer and enter safe mode to see if it worked. If not please let us know.


Thanks,

:tazz:

Excal,

It seems there are two issues here. First, when I go to www.ibiblio.org the "...tions" portion of the address seems to be a problem. I can't get past the pc-stuff part. I tried to navigate to the dos 9.0 several other ways but had no success.

Second, I was able to get the boot disk on floppy. But, when I try to boot with it I get the following NTLDR ismissing
Press any key to restart

Where do we go from here??

Again, thanks for all the help. I really appreciate your tenacity.

Excal,

Good news !!!!!!!!!!!! I was finally able to get the boot disk to work. Now, if I can get the dos files maybe we'll be on our way to success.

Thanks,
Larry
