    Dual Boot Windows XP with DOS

    Locked

    by justme2007 ·

    I have a computer that was preinstalled with winXP and I want to dual boot it with DOS. I need step by step instructions (everything from where to get DOS and its needed drivers, to making sure that winXP is the default OS). If I can do this for free then I would be much happier.

      Trying to install DOS,would require that you reformat the drive so that DOS would be installed first,and then XP
      Go to Microsoft Knowledge base for more info
      See the following

        I am looking for a direct step by step instructions, not just a web site that might have some info on the subject. I would like you to either post the steps here, or post a link to a web site with the steps.

      I would suggest buying a program called system commander. I makes things like partitioning easier.

      See Microsoft Article Q217210 for directions on how to set up your computer to multi-boot Microsoft OS’s. Go to Support.microsoft.com and search for the article number.
      The drivers you would need to get from the manufacturer of every device you have, ie video card, sound card, printer etc……
      As far as where to find MS-DOS, good luck! it hasn’t been manufactured for many years. You may try E-bay or another auction site.

      Hope this helped. Good luck…….

        I have already looked at this. This requires the previous OS to be install first. I can’t do this in my situation.
