MS-DOS Setup Patch Gauge Hangs at 99 Percent (113835)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.21

This article was previously published under Q113835


When you install MS-DOS 6.21, Setup attempts to patch your existing DoubleSpace files to update them for 6.21 and yet still retain the DoubleSpace functionality.

If the patch contains a valid header signature (FXPF) but the rest of the patch file is damaged, the system may stop responding (hang) with the patch gauge at 99 percent.


To work around this problem, reboot the system, run uninstall, and obtain replacement MS-DOS 6.21 disks.
