View Full Version : partitioning hard drive



18-04-2000, 09:14 AM
I am sick of Dos7 and would like to reinstall DOS6.11
Is there anyway of doing this without partitioning my hard drive? If I install Dos6 on a newly formatted 13gb drive it only recognises 2gb and the rest of the drive is useless.
Idealy what I want to do is boot to DOS6 and then if I want to use win98se just type win at the command prompt.If I want to go back to DOS6 I reboot to 'previous operating system'.
So is there any way of making Dos realise that drives are now bigger than 2 gb? After all at one time DOS thought drives could not be larger than 500mb.
