Hello

My pc doesn't have "msdos.sys" file. Open all hidden files and search for it but always failed to find this file in the system. Why? The pc runs smoothly and normally even without this file.

WinME, Compaq Bios, 10 gb HD

Thanks for any help!!!

I was wondering the same thing last night while trying to prepare a custom boot disk. I suspect that it has been replaced in ME by winboot.sys.

ME is one more step from Windows being DOS-based, and the registry may have replaced most of the previous functions of msdos.sys.

Greetings!

I know that the msdos.sys file is hidden. I tried to view all hidden files and search for it but I did not find it. Do WinME really need to have msdos.sys file?

Thanks!!!
