Thread: Looking for MS-DOS 5, 5.25" 360KB, Disk 3

    Default Looking for MS-DOS 5, 5.25" 360KB, Disk 3

    My image is corrupted; something happened to sectors 8 and 9 on tracks 0 through 19, which is bizarre.

    If your label matches this please talk to me so I can find out what I'm missing!

    You could look here, of course:

    No way to know if the label matches, but comparing the contents of the other disks in the archive to your good ones should give some confidence.

    Sorry, Mike. By that time, I was on 3.5" disks. I do have those, if it helps.

    I have MSDOS 5.0 on 360K disks. Mine say "SPRING" in the lower right where yours has "Microsoft". There are a few other differences in labels. Mine is a 5-disk set. I installed the set on my 5150 XT-IDE, so I know they work.

    Lafos - you are the winner! Yours match the four that I have perfectly.

    I have that same Spring set, still in the original box too. I was going to offer but I thought there's no way they will match the MS release exactly
