Installing DOS

Asked by Rod Lockwood on 2017-09-14

I used UNetBootIn to re-install Linux Mint booting the live session from the hard drive and it worked out really well. Thank you.

After I finished installing, I had an idea about a problem I had been trying to work out installing MS-DOS. It occurred to me that using something like UNetBootIn would make it a lot easier. Would it be possible for you to create a version of UNetBootIn to install MS-DOS? Somehow you would need to create a virtual floppy disk to make MS-DOS “think” it has the floppies (source) and hard drive (target). Assuming a working CD drive or USB thumb drive, these could be used for the source, but if they don’t work the hard drive needs to be used.

On the other hand, maybe a program like this already exists, and I just haven’t found it yet.

it's actually supported in the current version, choose FreeDOS from the dropdown menu

Thanks Geza Kovacs, that solved my question.
