This article was previously published under Q102718


If you you receive the following error message when booting your system with the MS-DOS 6 Setup Disk 1, it is likely that you are using the Data Expert original equipment manufacturer (OEM) version of MS-DOS 6:

System failed


As an OEM, Data Expert exercised its right to change the method in which the MS-DOS 6 operating system functions. Data Expert changed the boot functionality so that Data Expert MS-DOS looks specifically for the Data Expert computer BIOS signature. If its BIOS is not found, Data Expert MS-DOS refuses to boot.

If you boot from Data Expert MS-DOS 6 Setup Disk 1 on a system that uses a Data Expert motherboard, you should not receive the error mentioned above.
