You have done ONE thing wrong!
You have actually replaced the IO.SYS and the MSDOS.SYS files on your hard drive with the "Sys c:" command!
That couses windows not to boot up anymore.
In the file MSDOS.SYS was a lot of data who is deleted beceause the amount of data on the file written bij SYS.COM is MUCH less.
Here is an example of My MSDOS.SYS . (I use Win98SE, but try to replace the version number of YOUR windows version)
This is found in the line starting with "WinVer=...."
Lines that do NOT appy on Win95 such as autoscan and doublebuffer are already deleted.
Symply, make an text file named "msdos.txt" (Without quotes!).
Copy the contens of this text between -Begin- and -End- in that file,
Save that file on the root of your C.
By the way, This forum seems to kill HTML!!
Replace IN the text "(" for LeftBracket, the key right next to "P"
Replace ")" for RightBracket, The key second-next to "P"
EXEPT for THIS line:
"Do not remove them (MSDOS.SYS needs to be >1024 bytes)."
enter at the c-prompt "attrib c:\msdos.sys -h -r -s" (Without quotes!)
rename the textfile to "msdos.sys" (Confirm Overwrite!)
enter at the c-prompt "attrib c:\msdos.sys +h +r +s"
Reboot and see.
;The following lines are required for compatibility with other programs.
;Do not remove them (MSDOS.SYS needs to be >1024 bytes).
Give it a try!
