Want to install xp by caldera dr dos
The problem is hard enough for beginners . First :
1.DR DOS is used by ASUS . DR DOS isn't MS-DOS (Microsoft), just 99% compatible with it . You have access with it on whole HDD+cd/dvd but , because drdos will enable only 8MB RAM you can't install winnt.exe from i386 . There are at least 2 solutions :
a. if drdos is enable because u reseted BIOS try to change bios according to a better result (avoiding Caldera) and start a nice windows installation;
b. u may use another desktop/laptop until the first restart (in installation) ; u must try to use a computer with ~motherboard for best results.
Don't forget that DR DOS Caldera is almost every time used on ASUS MBs with all on board and you must have a PS2 keyboard/mouse to use any kind of DOS . I read sometimes that DRDOS is a soft used by Microsoft which it's wrong - there isn't any link between drdos and any windows system , genuine or not .
DRDOS problem might appear because it's a soft put on ASUS MB cd driver and , sometime, might be on a BIOS ROM .When u will boot with the MB cd driver in this kind of problem might occur .
Other way Caldera may appear is when u have a windows cd made careless with NERO and caldera will appear no matter the MB .
