|Did you get the disks I sent to work? Did you determine if your floppy drive is OK?|
You'd usually use the SYS command to copy the system files to a formatted blank disk since they need to be in a certain place on the disk. Then just use COPY to get the rest of the file on the disk.
You can also use DISKCOPY to make a duplicate of an existing disk.
I have some old dos versions copied to my hard drive but creating a bootable floppy from them can be a problem since the system files need to be in the right place on the disk and unless I boot with that OS I can't use its SYS command. In that case I copy the system files over those on a disk I already have--say 6.22--since the system files on that disk are already in the right place. But I have a problem with that method when there's a large difference in their system file sizes. Then I found out it's only io.sys that needs to be copied over the existing version on a working disk. Msdos.sys can just be copied to the disk as the next file. And it doesn't matter where command.com is on the disk.
So I use ATTRIB -S -H -R on the disk to expose the system files and delete msdos.sys and command.com. Then I copy io.sys from the version I want to the disk and it overwrites the one already on there. Then I copy msdos.sys to the disk as the next file and then command.com and the rest of the files.
That's how I created some of the disks I sent. Others I just used DISKCOPY and as I mentioned previously I tested them all. Anyway, maybe that will help if you've found some other working disks.
