When you run CONVERT.BAT from the Stacker Conversion Disk, the
following message is displayed:
Press ENTER at the DoubleSpace Setup Welcome screen to begin
converting your Stacker drives.
Loading DoubleSpace Setup...
CONVERT.BAT displays the above message and calls the MS-DOS CHOICE
command with the following parameters to pause for five seconds before
choice /ty,5 /n > nul
where "/ty,5" allows CHOICE to accept only the "Y" key or to default
to "Y" after five seconds and continue; "/n" causes CHOICE not to
prompt for user input; "> nul" redirects output from CHOICE so that it
is not displayed on screen.
This problem occurs if a key other than "Y" is pressed when the
message appears. Once pressed, the countdown timer stops and waits for
the required key to be pressed. The computer appears to be hung at
that screen although it is actually waiting for the "Y" key to
If the computer appears to stop responding (hang) when this message
appears on the screen, press the letter "Y" on the keyboard to
continue the DoubleSpace conversion.
