I presume that the DOS that contains this file is supposed to be on the hard drive. This laptop had been reformatted and was running XP Pro, albeit VERY SLOW.
I want to install Xubuntu, but it has the old BIOS and dead battery. I noted on other pages of this forum that it might be possible to hit "print S/Scrl Lck" instead of F1 during install. Barring that, I also saw where one member substituted one of the files in the update successfully.
Can someone help me figure out the COMMAND.COM problem? That may be all I need to get this to work.
