Modifying Configuration Files When Upgrading from Novell DOS 7 (114360)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.21
This article was previously published under Q114360
When you upgrade from Novell DOS 7 (without compression installed) to
MS-DOS 6.21, you receive the following error message at the beginning of
Your CONFIG.SYS file contains commands that are not valid MS-DOS
commands. You can have Setup create new AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS
files, or you can have Setup disable any invalid commands it finds in
your current AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files. If you choose to have
Setup create new files, your original files will be renamed and stored
in the root directory of your startup disk.
You have the following two options:
• Create New AUTOEXEC.BAT And CONFIG.SYS
• Modify Original Files
If you choose Modify Original Files, Setup updates the files to load MS-DOS
device drivers but does not remove all the Novell DOS device drivers. This
could result in your system trying to load more than one expanded memory
manager or disk cache.
To work around this problem, choose Create New AUTOEXEC.BAT And CONFIG.SYS
when you install MS-DOS 6.21 over Novell DOS 7 or manually update your
configuration files using MS-DOS Editor.
