If your Artisoft LANtastic network server software is running when you try to install MS-DOS 6 or later Upgrade, you receive one of the following error messages:

Setup cannot find a hard disk on your computer


Setup cannot identify your hard disk startup partition
and therefore cannot install MS-DOS on your hard disk.


Since LANtastic makes all drives look like network drives, the partition check shows a DOS partition. However, the local drive check return no local drives. Setup then displays the error message noted above.


For more information on using Artisoft LANtastic with MS-DOS 6.0 and later, see section 6 of the MS-DOS NETWORKS.TXT file.
