(Page 2 of 3)

SCSI Driver Problem



Solution: fdisk /mbr or fixmbr in Recovery Console.

No operating system found (DOS, Windows 9x)

Unformatted floppy in the floppy drive, by any chance?

Corrupt IO.SYS, MSDOS.SYS, or both.

Solution: SYS command, such as SYS C:

Invalid System Disk (DOS, Windows 9x)

IO.SYS is missing.

Solution: SYS command, such as SYS C:

Himem.sys Not Loaded

A line in config.sys to load a himem.sys is missing:

A line like this is needed: DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS

Missing or Corrupt Himem.sys

That is what it means. You will load Windows 9x without it. You can only choose Command Prompt mode from F8 menu. Obviously, you need to copy the file back. If the file is corrupted run Scandisk to check disk problems.
