Configuring a CD-ROM

Question:
I have formatted my machine, which does not have any operating system. I used DOS 6.22 to boot the system and was planning to install Win 95. But my DOS 6.22 booted system did not recognize my CD-ROM, so I could not load Win 95 or NT. Can you help me get my CD-ROM drive working at DOS level?

Answer:
You need to load the real-level drivers for the CD on your boot floppy and/or boot drive (C:) in the config.sys and autoexec.bat. You will need to check your documentation for the exact syntax, but on my system, in the config.sys I have:

	DEVICE=C:SCSIASPICD.SYS /D:ASPICD0

and in autoexec.bat I have:

	C:SCSIMSCDEX.EXE /D:ASPICD0 /M:12 /L:F
