You must be sure that the "USB boot" functionality is supported and enabled on your PC BIOS, otherwise the drive won't boot. Furthermore, be sure that the floppy disk you are trying to boot to is bootable in the first place, otherwise you can check some nice "boot disks" on (guess what?) BootDisk.com


Enjoy ;-)

It's impossible install MBR, How I can get install?


If this MBR mean, Master Boot Record, it's a DOS-alike thing.
You require a DOS or Windows 95 / 98 bootflop, containing the program FDISK (forgot if it was .com or .exe)

After booting you get the DOS-prompt which is text-based and looks like :

"A:>_" or "C:>_"

Now, in this case you enter the following: "fdisk /mbr"

So the DOS-prompt will look like :
"A:>fdisk /mbr" or "C:>fdisk /mbr"

Then you hit the ENTER-button at your keyboard and if DOS can find this fdisk-program, it will rewrite the master boot record of your harddisk.

How to install dos operating system on?


You would need a clean partition on a hard drive, a floppy drive (A:\) and the DOS 6.22 floppy's. You may be able to use an USB drive, but I have not tested. Then there is the problem of dual booting. You would need to modify boot.ini, bootmgr (Win 7), or boot from floppy to access DOS.

FYI: Windows has DOS shell already available. Or you can boot into command prompt.

How do you turn off DOS mode on a 13" MacBook Pro?


Is this a trick question? There is no "DOS mode" on a MacBook Pro.
Do you have WIndows installed as part of Boot Camp, and your machine is booting into Windows? To boot back into the Mac, either use the Boot Camp control panel in Windows, or hold down the Option key after you hear the startup chime and select the OS X partition to boot from.

I can't get ghost mouse


If you booted on a floppy or other DOS disk to run ghost then you need to load a DOS mouse driver first. Then ghost will find it.

IE boot to DOS, load mouse driver, run ghost.
Note DOS may not detect USB ports so COM or PS/2 mouse is better.

Bios no option to Boot from usb Cd rom broken


Floppy works right? So you need to boot from floppy disk, install USB drivers in DOS and then access an external USB device... whew. OK, so getting a dos 6.22 boot disk is easy, then you have to load a DOS-level USB device driver that 'recognizes the chipset in your USB controller/port and can turn it 'ON'

Go here and READ ;-) They have everything you need (except for my expert help)
http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm

Good luck!
P.S. There are many DOS-level drivers out there, if you don't find one for your PC, make a noise and I'll see if I can help

Unable to load


How to get to a MS-DOS prompt.
Reason: If Windows or the computer is not operating properly, it may be necessary to get to a MS-DOS prompt to diagnose and to perform additional troubleshooting on the computer.
Solution: MS-DOS users
Windows 3.x users
Windows 95, 98 and ME users
Windows NT, 2000 and XP users
Windows Vista users
Other PC Operating System users

MS-DOS users If you are running MS-DOS with no other operating systems, the computer should be booting into a MS-DOS prompt automatically unless you have a shell or other program loading automatically. If the computer is not getting you to a MS-DOS prompt, reboot the computer and as the computer is booting, press the F5 key when you see the message "Starting MS-DOS" or the MS-DOS version. This will load the default standard MS-DOS. If you successfully get to a MS-DOS prompt and would like to prevent the computer from loading the program that is preventing you from getting to a MS-DOS prompt, or if you would like to fix possible error messages you may be receiving when booting the computer, edit the autoexec.bat and/or the config.sys files.

Windows 95, 98, and ME users If you are able to get into Windows 95, 98 or ME, you can get to a MS-DOS prompt by following the below steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type "command" and press enter.
This will open a MS-DOS shell. However, if you are attempting to troubleshoot an issue with the computer and are using Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98we suggest you restart the computer into MS-DOS. To do this follow the below steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Shutdown
  3. Choose the option to restart the computer into a MS-DOS prompt.
If you are unable to get into Windows 95 or Windows 98 to get into a MS-DOS prompt, follow the below instructions (Windows ME does not have this option).
  1. Reboot the computer
  2. As the computer is booting, press the F8 key when you hear a beep or when you see "Starting Windows 95" or "Starting Windows 98". Windows 98 users sometimes may find it easier to press and hold the left CTRL key as the computer is booting.
  3. If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
Microsoft Windows 95 Startup Menu
============================= 1. Normal
2. Logged (\BOOTLOG.TXT)
3. Safe mode
4. Step-by-step confirmation
5. Command prompt only
6. Safe mode command prompt only
Enter a choice: 1
F5=Safe Mode Shift+F5=Command prompt Shift+F8= Step-by-step confirmation [N]

4. Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only.
Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Vista users If you're running Windows NT, 2000, or Windows XP and need to get to MS-DOS prompt follow the below steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run or click in the "Start Search" field if you're running Vista
  3. Type "cmd" or "command" and press enter.
Additional information about the difference between "cmd" and "command" can be found on document CH000395. If you're attempting to get into a MS-DOS prompt to troubleshoot the computer boot the computer into safe mode. Additional information about how to get into safe mode can be found on document CHSAFE. Windows 2000, XP, and Vista users who are unable to boot the computer into Normal Windows mode or Safe mode can also enter the recovery console to manage their computer from a prompt. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000627. Finally, if you are experiencing issues getting into Windows NT, 2000, or XP, it may be necessary to run troubleshooting steps from a MS-DOS prompt. It is recommended that the Network Administrator get into the MS-DOS prompt by using either a standard MS-DOS boot diskette (note: will not be able to access data using a standard MS-DOS bootable diskette) or the ERD diskettes created after the installation of Windows NT, or boot from the Windows XP CD.
