RxDOS 7.24 release (Announce)

posted by Doug(R) E-mail, 11.10.2018, 09:32

I can't get RxDOS to boot fully from diskette -- it could not find a command interpreter.

Followed directions:
INSTSECT A:
copy RXDOS.COM a:
copy RXCMD.EXE a:

Both files are on the diskette. But on reboot, RxDOS reports:
...
init: Boot drive and file name: "A:\RXDOS.COM"
Starting RxDOS...
init: Loading shell "RXCMD.EXE" arguments ""
init: Error 0002h: File not found
init: Loading shell "RXCMD.COM" arguments ""
init: Error 0002h: File not found
init: Loading shell "COMMAND.COM" arguments ""
init: Error 0002h: File not found
Could not find command shell
Halted. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot.

I also tried it with a couple of COMMAND.COMs, first from MS-DOS 7.1 and then from PC-DOS 7.1 -- same result.

Is there something i'm missing? Or is it a bug?
