Default Re: Im stuck.. need help with DOS

Just create an DOS bootdisk using windows xp or me or an earlier version.

Put that disk in before you start up the computer and once you get to the A:/> part of the screen try typing in D: , just ( D: ) no brackets or w/e they are called.

If you can't go into logical drive D: try finding a windows 3.1 lol operating system. heh. or else.. throw the laptop against the wall and call it junk.

You didn't really tell me much about the laptop, do you have a floppy drive? Do you have a cd-rom drive? If you don't have a cdrom drive that's a pretty old laptop. What's the specifications on it?

Default Re: Im stuck.. need help with DOS

i'm old skewl dos. me help i think??!? omgwtfbbq!?

A few questions:

What drives do you have on there?

What do you want the laptop to do?

Do you understand that you can't upgrade most hardware in laptops?

Do you just want the Disk Operating System on there or.. something like Windows?

Do you know how much space is on your hard drive to load in another operating system?

Can you go to C: ?
