    sys0318 message file not found

    I am using a network boot disk for a 3com 10/100 NIC (3c574). It works fine on Dell Inspiron 4000 PCs. I tried the same boot disk on some Dell Inspiron 3500s and am getting the following error: “DOS error 53 occurred. SYS0318: Message file OSO001.msg cannot be found.” All references on the Web I can find point to this being an OS/2 error message but I do not have OS/2. Any help would be appreciated.

      Provide more information such as NOS, OS on the Inspiron 3500s, and the boot process that it goes through.

      Start with the DOS error 53. That might give you a clue where the problem is occuring. As for the message file, when does the error occur in the boot sequence? If you can locate where it does occur, then you can investigate if it is driver configuration for that nic card (set to OS/2 compatibility?). SYS0318: looks like a novell prompt.
