According to Tandon Technical Support, Microsoft MS-DOS 5 Upgrade
cannot be installed on Tandon Pac 286 computers. The Setup program can
be used on these computers to create a working set of MS-DOS disks,
but the upgrade cannot be installed on the Pac 286's removable hard
Tandon is aware of this problem, and is planning on releasing its own
version of MS-DOS that can be installed on these machines.
The Tandon Pac 286 computer has two removable hard drives. The MS-DOS
5.0 Setup program does not recognize these removable hard drives and
currently cannot be made to install to them. These hard drives are
also not recognized if the machine is booted from an MS-DOS 5.0 boot
disk, preventing a manual installation.
NOTE: Tandon Corporation has ceased operations in North America.
