    I have to make a boot disk that boots to DOS for a class of mine, not only did I have to pull out an old P3 cause it was the only computer I can get my hands on that still has an A: drive, but now I can't figure out any way to do it.

    I've found: Computer Hope.com, Elder Geek, and BootDisk.com.

    So far I've only found what seems like boot disks to Windows (Elder Geek) or DOS (BootDisk & Computer Hope) being made with XP...

    Anyone have a clue, cause I know I don't.

    sys c: = 'sys' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operatble program or batch file

    BootDisk.com would be great, but I have to make it myself.

    heh 2000/XP does not have SYS or FORMAT /S anymore (since they don't run on top of DOS). Best bet grab an image from somewhere like Penguin Man suggested.

    And it would be SYS A: not SYS C: for a floppy.
