I got Windows Millenium build 2380 at Frozenport.com and I have to set my system date to 1999. I used Windows Me's startup disk and tried SYS, but it refused to SYS to C:. How can I remove the timebomb?

Where do you want to go today?

All Microsoft operating systems!
What error message do you get? I've gotten the error message "Cannot gain exclusive access to Drive C:" when trying to use the SYS command.

@WinPC//When I tried to SYS on Windows's DOSBOX, I get the message "Cannot gain exclusive access to Drive C:" and on Windows Me's retail startup disk, it said "Cannot find the system file in the standard location", "Use Windows SETUP to make C: bootable" and something like that.

If i'm not mistaken, there was a build of this getting around osba with the timebomb removed.
Surely someone here from osba would have it, I was on dialup for most of the time there
so I never really got to download much. :(

modern NT and Unix
problem with Millennium is that DOS is hidden and for that specific reason "no access" is a common problem on this OS when running DOS apps.

Try booting with a ME or 98SE CD/Floppy and type

DRIVELETTER of Bootmedium:\LOCK ( e.g. "A:\Lock" )

it whould warn you that LOCK will give full rw access - you need to confirm that with yes or no, and then you can patch files.

also there used to be a "realmode" patch for ME systems, which enables DOSmode like that of 98/98SE ( e.g. the shutdown option to kill windows but stay in Dos ).

ASk Google or here, this patch was widely used 8-|
