|Missing Operating system|
Earlier today, I loaded up an old hard drive and Windows 3.1 took off a going like it had for years. Did some stuff there then quit. Turned off the computer and found did a batch of bad work so came back to add and correct.
Now, am getting the error message of Missing Operating System smack after completing the boot process.
How could DOS go bad so fast then? Anyone got an idea as to what should do to reinstall an operating system? Using another computer and connection, I can find the Autoexec.bat file and it looks normal. I ran Scandisk there too, and it said all was OK and normal with the old hard drive. I got the old DOS disks, but do not want to load them up for after that it will be Windows 3.1 time again, and will loose every single file and program then.
