    I don't think so. Why do you want the real DOS? Use the emulator

    Are you trying to boot DOS6.22 from a floppy disk or a harddrive?

    At a guess the main problem is that it does not support harddrives larger than 2GB. I seem to recall having to mess with sector translation mode in BIOS settings for drives larger than 512MB.
    Also it does not support FAT32 or NTFS format partitions.

    Its not a problem with the harddrive size. My DOS motherboard is faulty and I connect the harddrive to a P4 cpu. It hangs when booting up
    I have some DOS program which needs to be run in DOS.
    any help?
