- Originally 86-DOS, written by Tim Paterson of Seattle Computer Products, DOS was a rough clone of CP/M for 8086 based hardware.Microsoft purchased it and licensed it to IBM for use with Microsoft's IBM PC language products. In 1982, Microsoft began licensing DOS to other OEMs that ported it to their custom x86 hardware and IBM PC clones.

- VMWare安装MS-DOS 7.10,现在，虚拟机不是一个遥不可及的地位了，但是，如果很多人很在乎新的版本，那也有很多人在乎旧的版本，所以有了很多“考古”式的开发，这时候，虚拟机就大显身手了.
AFAIK, MS-DOS was not made to boot from optical disk (CD/DVD) or USB (except MS-DOS 7.1, which does work on CD), it's only for floppy disks. Floppy disks were what people used back in the 80's and early 90's for installing media on computers. Optical disks were not fully mainstream until about 1993 or 94, when operating systems, software, and other computer media started being sold on CD. So with that said, you already have the installation media extracted from your 7z file, but it's in the IMG format, the disk image file format used for floppy images, and it's most likely bootable.
I don't know. But if you try making MSCDEX and making floppy boot work in CD Boot, it might work. Sorry i am doing good at Lua, not how DOS is made (it might be assembly)
Actually in both cases making bootable image is trivial: you just embed your floppy image into larger CD or USB image. Use mkisofs -b option for that (other programs would surely support other options) and RMPrepUSB for USB.
What's tricky - is to provide support for the USB and CD itself! Because by default BIOS would just emulate that mini-floppy for you... and that's it. Your MS DOS would boot perfectly fine... except it wouldn't see the CD and/or USB it just booted from!
MS-DOS is made for floppy not CD's but compact flash will work just fine as well as SD card
Um, DOS is not 'made' for booting from USB devices either. Although any BIOS that can make a USB drive look like a floppy or hard drive may work.
Making a bootable CD is not too hard really. I use ImgBurn 188.8.131.52 that is posted here on Winworld. Just go in to its options and tell it to make a bootable CD, give it a 1.44mb or 2.88mb DOS image and the CD it writes should boot to that image. The main catch is you won't be able to see the rest of the CD unless the image loads the DOS CD driver for your machine and MSCDEX. While generic IDE drivers will work on most IDE machines, many machines will need different CD drivers. SATA CD drives will have to run in IDE emulation mode. If you need to experiment with the image, use rewritable CD-RW media.
There's some funky grub stuff out there that can mount a floppy image on usb to ram and boot dos from it. It would then do emulation of the usb drive to enable some sort of r/w.
I used to use that in my microdrives as an emergency boot disk when I was too cheap to go buy a newfangled (and smaller capacity) usb flash drive for the purpose, and I was trying to get rid of floppies. Set my d2x to mass storage mode, plug it in, and profit.
I still use that thing as an oversized usb drive, but at least it can take pictures!
to make a bootable CD I use ultra iso and back in the the day of dos computers I would
use the sys command to put a boot on floppys I am not sure if you can use that command on a usb!
You could store all the files on their and DOS could probably figure out which is which...
- All versions of DOS, including 7.1 and later, can not boot from a cdrom. The trick is to create a bootable floppy diskette, and set it to load the cdrom. For this to happen, you need to create a 1440 image, with a proper DOS bootsector, etc.
Put in the boot files IBMBIO.COM and IBMDOS.COM (or IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS for MSDOS), or IO.SYS and JO.SYS for Dos95. Then COMMAND.COM. You can put a range of local utilities, like fdisk, format. You can use a cdrom loader, eg eltorito.sys, or the like, which hooks up the cdrom through the boot chain.
Use some sort of utility like XMSDSK to make the ramdrive, and set the ramdrive to R: and the cdrom to S:
Lay the hard disk so it has an ISO format, and you can install all different versions of DOS on the same disk. An MS-DOS boot sector on the floppy can be used to install MS-DOS 5 to 6.22, as well as windows etc.
When it comes time to cut the image, tell the proggie that your BOOTDSK is the boot disk of the day. You can have several boot images, and pick them from a menu.
The idea behind the ramdrive is to make things quicker. A 4 Meg ramdrive should suit most needs.
With Dos98 (ie 98/98SE/ME), JO.SYS is a proggie that provides the 'do you want the cdrom boot' before heading off to the hard drive. Some menu programs do this too, so if you're doing it by menu, you don't need JO.SYS there.
MS-DOS and Windows 3.x
(CD-ROM's for Windows are installed via MS-DOS but may have a Windows Setup available)
In order to use a CD-ROM Drive, your computer must first have a CD-ROM software driver installed. This is usually supplied with the drive but may not necessarily have been installed. The CD-ROM software driver is normally supplied on a floppy disk and includes a SETUP or INSTALL program. Following installation, the CD-ROM software driver is normally loaded at system startup time via a series of entries in the machine's C:CONFIG.SYS & C:AUTOEXEC.BAT files.
It was also the first version of Windows to be distributed on CD-ROM citation needed – although this was more common for Windows for Workgroups 3.11, which typically came with MS-DOS 6.22 on one CD citation needed. Installed size on the hard disk was between 10 MB and 15 MB.
LH C:DOSMSCDEX.EXE /D:mscd001 /l:D
The first /D: switch is the drive number, which must be the same in both config.sys and autoexec.bat. In the above example its '/D:mscd001'. (If you had 2 drives fitted the second may be /D:mscd002) The /l:D switch sets a drive letter for your CD-ROM. (In this case DriveD:) You can make this anything you want after your Hard Drives that is not taken, but make sure you put a 'LASTDRIVE=' line at the end of config.sys to allow for enough environmental space. This can be made as the letter after your last drive in use (i.e. =F) as each letter used, uses a small piece of available environment. (LASTDRIVE=Z would enable ALL available Drive Letters) In this example HIMEM.SYS is used to load driver into upper memory block.
oakcdrom.sys = CD-ROM Driver (Which is named differently by each manufacturer) and can be located in its own directory.
MSCDEX.EXE is provided as part of MS-DOS and sometimes on Install Disk as well.
HIMEM.SYS is provided as part of MS-DOS and enables use of the upper memory area.
Ms Dos 6.22 Installation Iso
Windows 95 does not need a CD-ROM Driver installed as above, as it installs its own driver. However you may want to install a DOS Driver in this way to enable you to use your CD-ROM at the DOS Prompt. Remember that Windows 95 stores its DOS files at C:WINDOWSCOMMAND not C:DOS as in older versions!
Some CD-ROM Drivers you can try:

CD-ROM God Ver 5.5 is a boot disk that has 50+ CD-ROM drivers.(Including SCSI) It has basic ATAPI drivers, and model specific drivers. This version unzips drivers to a ramdrive! It has a better - sleeker - shareware free menu. This disk uses DEVICE.COM to load. This way you won't have to re-boot a million times! ISO-9660 CD Support and SMARTDRV.EXE
