I haven’t used DOS in a long time, but I’ve just installed Dos 6.22 on a USB flash drive, and I have 2 questions.
1. On boot-up I get a “HIMEM testing extended memory…” message. In the old days when memory was measured in Mbs, it didn’t take long. At least, not that I recall. But if I run it in my modern PC with 4Gb of memory it takes up to a minute. Is there a way of stopping it doing that test?
2. I installed DOS from floppies, which set the partition size as 500Mb. But it’s an 8Gb stick. Can I still use the rest for storage, via Windows or Linux?
Thanks in advance
