Re: [WIN7] 64 bit Windows 7 vs. an old DOS app

The client I'm working with apparently never utilized the create system disks option. The machine in question is a late model HP with the appropriate Win 7 MS decals, so I would assume it's a legit OEM licensed unit, just some laziness or lack of understanding during start up I suppose. The machine has been in use for a matter of months so I'm not clear if a proper system disk script could run at this point. Perhaps it could. Not sure, and both of us are extremely limited for time and I go on the road in a new job in a matter of days. It's an "accomplish x hours of _______ in x minutes" scenario at this point.

I'll see how DOSBOX behaves. If that fails, I may have to take a run at making system disks. I'm test running this project on my own Win 7 machine to save time at the client's home.

Thank you.

If the create system disc utility was never run then it should still function and be able to create them.
