OK, this may sound odd, but my dad still uses a 386 with DOS5 and Windows 3.11.
Just to print his invoices, but that doesn't really matter
Anyway, the other night, he started deleting files, and somehow, he must have deleted some vital files for DOS to work.
All he gets now, is a "Non-system disk or disk error" message.
I still have an old 486 laptop with DOS 6.22 and Win3.11 on it.
I tried making a boot diskette on that one, and put it in my dad's....nothing.
which other files should a boot diskette have in order to work?
For some reason drvspace.bin is also on the boot diskette, but I think that won't hurt any.
Could anyone give me some advice on this matter, other than tell me my dad should stop living in the middle ages.
He only wants to recover certain files off the HD...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
