hey there everyone. was wondering how to install ms-dos onto a computer. I dont want windows to load on start-up. Im going back in time to check some things out.
i have a blank hd and just cant seem to install dos. Do they still make a setup disk? if so do you know where i can find one.

If I remember correctly, MS-DOS came on floppies.

Now, what kind of computer are you installing it onto? If the computer is too new, it might not work properly, I dunno.
A DOS boot disk should be enough to get a computer going, there really isn't much to the OS. Just boot up on the flopppy, partition and format your hard drive, then do:
and you should be all set to boot of the hard drive
