This running very perfect, you can easy edit the msdos.sys file in your
C:\ directory, remove the write-protection from the file, and edit the
on this way, the computer booting in DOS, when you like to boot in
windows, simple type win <enter>..
But you also may use the boot-keys from windows, to boot in dos.
May be they are disable on your MS-DOS.SYS...
Hope this help.
