As long as it's configured in IDE mode I don't see why not.

The partition size would be an issue.

It was meant to be a joke, since SSD's don't have disks.

The joke doesn't really work with Solid State Disks.

Oh, because the D in dos is for DISK.

I think DOS--the operating system--would run on SSD once you got it on there but that might be difficult to do with a normal installation attempt.

I thought SSD stood for Solid State Drive....

Could be wrong though.

Either way funny joke!

MS-DOS was the only MS OS without performance issue ;)

Performance on versions of DOS before they introduced disk caching was appalling.

It could work and also lol!

The SSD would need to be partitioned and formatted for DOS and then it would make the fastest DOS ever.

now where did I store my DOS 1.0 floppy . . .

At last... we can bring back DOS...; and thus defeat the hackers - who won't be bothered to hack anything "so simple"...

Sure, as I mentioned above, it would run on an SSD--IF you can get it installed. I don't know that dos FDISK, FORMAT or setup would recognize the drive.

Perhaps use a windows OS first part ion and format the SSD, then see if DOS will go in...

Which is why I use a Symbian smart phone - handwriting recognition built in - but then I only use it as a phone and personal alarm, and camera, and audio recorder, and ...........
