Thread: dos image

  1. #1

    Default dos image

    ok, i have been looking for an hour or so (i am no noob to searching BTW) and i still cannot find a DOS image, i have gotten 2 boot disks, both of which dont seem to quite do the job


    i am an old hardware freak, my current project is getting an OS on a compaq slt 286 laptop, thats where this problem is coming from, this thing was way ahead of its time! it only has a 3.5 floppy so i cant use my 5.25 floppys!

    Why would you do this?

    I don't think you're going to find one online(easily)

    If you want a fun OS:
    http://ubuntu.com

    Er...no...

    Why are you messing with DOS anyways?

    I mean there really is nothing good coming from it

    I would say FreeDOS, except I don't think you can install it without a CD-ROM drive. However, you may have luck with Minix 2: http://www.minix3.org/previous-versions/Intel-2.0.4/

    there are sites that you can download dos disk images from...it's probably still considered pirating, but hey it's not like you can buy it new anyway :P

    I remember finding some sites back in the day when I was getting an old 486 back up and running with dos6.22 and win3.11 - which kicked serious *ss by the way

    you can try this link: http://www.vetusware.com/output/uzskwjuq/DOS.622.rar

    but I haven't tried it, so I can't guarantee it isn't a virus or something, I just found it on ze google.

    EDIT: if you have MSDN subscription or know anyone who does, you can get it from there too.

    Normally I say the idea of abandonware is kind of shady, but if we're talking like DOS 3, I think it's fair game haha. People wouldn't use it if MS paid them
