Boot dos from a slave drive Tags: Slave Drive Boot Storage Last response: January 17, 2012 2:19 AM in Storage Share BostonBobblyHead January 16, 2012 8:47:58 PM Hello, How can I boot MS-DOS 5.0 that has been installed on a slave drive in a primary partition? The drive is an ATA IDE drive. I usually boot Windows 95 using the IDE Master drive. The slave hard drive is on the same IDE channel...the primary. I want the capability to boot into MS-DOS 5.0 using the slave drive. Can I do this? How? My slave is jumpered as slave and my master is jumpered as Master. They are both seen OK by the BIOS.

The computer should then boot from the MSDOS hard drive. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
