SYMPTOMS
When you choose MS-DOS from the Boot Loader menu, you are returned tothe menu. If you choose MS-DOS again, MS-DOS starts normally.
CAUSE
This behavior is caused by QEMM 7.x DOS-UP.
RESOLUTION
To correct this problem change the DOS-DATA.SYS line in the CONFIG.SYSfile to:
DEVICE=DOS-DATA.SYS /BOOTFILE=BOOTSECT.DOS
NOTE: This parameter will be stripped out of the CONFIG.SYS file ifyou run Optimize again.

-OR-

Disable the DOS-UP feature by removing the DEVICE=DOS-DATA.SYS linefrom the CONFIG.SYS file.
