How do I create an MS-DOS boot partition with HPFS or NTFS?
You'll need to do one of a few things:
1) You can create a new partition on the disk. If you still have room left for a partition, mark that as bootable, and install the boot files there. I'd recommend using a third-party boot manager for this.
2) You can create a bootable MS-DOS floppy disk, which is generally less of a headache. You can download one from www.bootdisk.com.
