Erratic Behavior with MS-DOS 5.0 and Phillips BIOS (78408)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0
This article was previously published under Q78408
Phillips has confirmed that after installing MS-DOS 5.0 on a Magnavox 300
or 500 series computer with Phillips BIOS, erratic behavior may occur. This
behavior will appear as random error messages at boot-up, or an inability
to format disks.
To resolve this problem, ensure that the CMOS settings match the
devices installed on the computer. If they match, save the settings;
otherwise, make appropriate changes and save the settings.
Some of the error messages that may occur at boot-up when MS-DOS 5.0
is installed on the above machines are:
Bad or Missing Command Interpreter
Bad or Missing SHARE.EXE
Error in CONFIG.SYS line 4 4
To check CMOS settings, do the following:
• Press CTRL+ALT+INSERT when the machine is booting.
• Verify the current settings (type of drive and so on).
• Press F3 to save the settings.
