Returning to Boot Loader After Choosing MS-DOS

Q104620



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





SYMPTOMS

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.



CAUSE

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



RESOLUTION

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

DEVICE=DOS-DATA.SYS /BOOTFILE=BOOTSECT.DOS

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

-OR-

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