Kuchiyo, Can it be assumed that you have the floppies for DOS and are creating a new DOS 6.xx virtual disk?

If so then you need to format the new virtual disk with a dos formated floppy.

I would not worry about formatting your regular C drive as it won't let you do that, you need to run fdisk (which it sounds like you did) and then format the new vpc C drive using the /s option so that it is bootable.

as long as you are running in a Virtual Machine window, it won't let you format the main C drive.
