This article was previously published under Q101410
The Microsoft Windows and MS-DOS 5 Upgrade for IBM PS/2 computers
cannot be installed on an IBM ValuePoint machine. However, the
Microsoft Windows and MS-DOS Upgrade for machines other than PS/2s
does work on the ValuePoint machine.
Microsoft Windows & MS-DOS 5 for IBM PS/2 Setup fails on the
ValuePoint machine because a specific string is missing in the ROM.
When this string is not found, the following error message appears:
This version of Windows and MS-DOS setup will only work on a computer
manufactured by IBM. Obtain the correct Windows and MS-DOS setup from
your computer manufacturer or dealer. Remove the disk from your floppy
disk drive and restart or turn off your computer.
To work around this problem, use the non-PS/2 version.
