    genuine dos 6.2X boot disk required

    Hi,

    I'm trying to flash a new laptop DVD drive with some software to change the jumper settings from master to slave.

    I've been given the flash image and software from the manufacturer and been told to run it in dos mode.

    I've download a supposed to be 6.2 boot image from bootdisk.com but when I execute the application it tells me the program must be run in a genuine dos environment not a windows dos environment.

    Could anyone please supply a genuine dos boot disk to flash my drive please.

    thanks

    I think what you downloaded for bootdisk was an image, so running it would give you that sort of error. Normally you need Rawrite.exe to write the image to a floppy..
