PS/1 - After installing MS-DOS 6.22, can I restore my 4-quadrant menu screen?

Applicable to: United States

Yes, you can restore the original 4-quadrant screen after installing MS-DOS 6.22. After you upgrade to MS-DOS 6.22, you will no longer have your 4-quadrant start-up screen.

The four quadrant screen can be restored by downloading and installing the file called 4QUADMS6.EXE from the IBM PS/1 - Aptiva Bulletin Board (BBS) at 919-517-0001. You can access the BBS by using the Windows TERMINAL program or other communications software of your choice.

You can also order this file from the IBM Help Center at 800-772-2227. You will be charged a small fee for the Help Center service.

To reinstall the four quadrant screen, follow these steps using the diskette containing 4QUADMS6.EXE:

1. Insert the diskette in drive A.

2. If you are in the DOS shell, exit it.

3. Change to the A: prompt and enter the following:


4. Enter the following at the A: prompt:


5. The changes will be made automatically.

6. Restart your computer by pressing [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del]. Your PS/1 will restart with the four quadrant screen.

The install program places the line "C:\RSSTUB" at the end of your AUTOEXEC.BAT. This line creates your four quadrant screen and should always remain the last line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT.
