I need some help dual booting DOS and Windows 95 on the same hard drive, two partitions. I initially wiped out a WD 10.2GB hard drive. First, I installed DOS 6.22 and used FDISK to partition out two 2GB partitions, labeled drive C and D. DOS was installed on partition C.
After the installation completed, I ran FDISK again at the C:\ prompt to format partition D. Next, I inserted my Windows 95 CD, changed my BIOS settings to boot from the CD-ROM drive and restarted. When Windows Setup prompted me which directory to install Windows, I changed the destination directory to partition D and the setup finished successfully. After Windows 95 finished installing, I rebooted and Windows 95 loads by default. Within Windows, I tried restarting in MS-DOS, but it only let me go to D:\WINDOWS and I could not change directory back to the C:\ prompt.
Can someone please help me on how I can create a boot menu? Do I need to add some information to AUTOEXEC.BAT, MYDOS.SYS, or CONFIG.SYS? So far the only way I've been able to access those 3 files is within Windows and editing them in Notepad.
