At that time, DOS was still not a retail product, but small OEMs could buy generic MS-DOS from Microsoft directly. The surface analysis takes quite a while, but it gets the job done. Reference Guides for Master Boot Record pages: The Standard MBR created by versions of FDISK.EXE from MS-DOS 3.30 through Windows 95 (with MS-DOS 7.0) The MBR created by MS-Windows In this section I describe how to create the image from the ISO on linux by following these steps.

However, the support for larger than 32MB partitions still had to wait. For information on the UNIX/Linux fdisk programs: fdisk, sfdisk, cfdisk, etc., try the commands: "man fdisk" and "man sfdisk" (at your *nix console prompt). Windows 2000/XP/2003 As stated above (at the end of our "Versions" section), the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 OSs do *not* contain any FDISK program; although you will find a copy of FORMAT.COM inside
