    Default Boot disk (English) for Olivetti Prodest PC1

    I've got a DOS 3.2 boot disk for my Olivetti Prodest PC1, but it is in Italian. I wondered if anybody had access to boot disks that came with the English versions of this PC?

    Thank you.

    I'm also interested in this, however it should be quite a standard 3.2 MS-DOS on a 720kb diskette. A Spanish version exist so it must be also in English. Any other language version are also desired.

    There is technically nothing special on Prodest PC 1. You can take any MS-DOS version of your language.

    No, this is really in Italian, it's only a bad screenshot.

    I think you can re-create English DOS floppy overwriting "COMMAND.COM" and then "IBMBIO.COM" "IBMDOS.COM" from a standard 3.20 English dos.
    The "IBM....COM" files contain little text but is better to overwriting it.

    I was gonna say, that first link definitely wasn't in English in every area.



    The second link however, definitely in English.
