"Real" windows boot CD
Posted 09 December 2003 - 01:34 PM
I jsu t got an old tablet pc, with no CD or Floppy.
Ofcourse no OS on the hard disk. It does have a USB slot, PCMCIA slot and parrellel/serial port. The bios is old, 1999 and I dont think it supports USB BOOT.
Can anyone one tell me how I boot the system so I can format the HD and install an OS on it??
Thanks in advance

I cannot find 98LITE22.ZIP anywhere on the internet.
The site is gone and the link doesn't work anymore
( http://www.tweakpc.c...es/98lite22.zip )
Even web.archive.org lets you get to the site, but the file isn't there.
Hope you can e-mail it to me: steve AT prolynx DOT com

I tried to make one myself. Get the error "not enough free memory" after loading the suggested drivers from config.sys and autoexec.bat. Changed all drivers in config.sys to "devicehigh", still the same problem. Running mem.exe shows 604 kb free memory. I believe it should be enough to start windows.
What can be the problem? To much memory (1,5 Gb)?
Indeed.. 1,5 is too much for DOS. 512 should not be a problem.
If you try to make a boot disk (CD)(FLOPPY) look at http://www.nu2.nu/modboot on this site you can find out to make a boot disk.
Even if you want to use firewire. USB or any other devices not compatible with DOS.

Maybe shipping could be used like putting it on a regular cd.
