Hi,
I'm checking an evaluation copy of Virtual PC. I want to
install MS-DOS 6.22. After creating the console and the
virtual disk, the system asks for a "bootable media".
Inserting the corresponding diskette of DOS installation
(which includes autoexec.bat because is disk #1), the
resulting message is "not bootable media".
I tried with an startup disk of windows 98. DOS is
loaded, but I suppose in the virtual RAM disk so when
executing autoexec.bat from the installation diskette,
the answer is "invalis OS".
Any help will be appreciated
