[03/03/2011] - D430 BIOS rework

Recommended Posts

Use a usbpen with free dos ;)

 

you can create the pen via unetbootin ;)

 

Having some trouble running the D430_OSX.EXE from Freedos on a USB pen. I created the pen as per online instructions and I can boot into Freedos on my D430.

I copied the D430_OSX.EXE onto the USB pen (top directory, I guess), but I can't run it from Freedos. If I got to disk C (type c:) I get the C prompt, but typing D430_OSX.EXE gives me Bad command or filename.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

P.S. am running Freedos in Safe Mode, not install mode.

Yeah, I'd tried that, but all I get is Volume in drive C has no label, and then it gives the volume serial number.

 

I'm no genius with command lines, but what I've seen on the web is that it should simply be to go to the C drive, type the name of the file and hit enter.

I copied the EXE file directly to the USB pen from my Mac, and didn't change the name. It's still D430_OSX.EXE

try d:

 

Yeah, I did try A thru F.... but no go. If I use b:, it says to remove diskette in drive A and Insert diskette in drive B.

C is there, but I can't run the exe from it.

All the others get Invalid drive.
