Returning to Boot Loader After Choosing MS-DOS


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


When you choose MS-DOS from the Boot Loader menu, you are returned to the menu. If you choose MS-DOS again, MS-DOS starts normally.


This behavior is caused by QEMM 7.x DOS-UP.


To correct this problem change the DOS-DATA.SYS line in the CONFIG.SYS file to:


NOTE: This parameter will be stripped out of the CONFIG.SYS file if you run Optimize again.


Disable the DOS-UP feature by removing the DEVICE=DOS-DATA.SYS line from the CONFIG.SYS file.
