    I have a Bridgeport Romi EZ-Path Lathe Circa-1993. Replaced the battery, but control needs to have DOS boot disk. I have the backup software, but no Boot. Can anyone help?

    You may have a bad floppy drive.

    Any old dos 6 boot disk will get you in. Then you will have to install dos on the HDD and your other software for th e machine.
    I have all of it if you need it.

    Thanks Steve, I will have some time to work on it tomorrow. I have the EZ-Path Machine software, but I'm not sure I have a copy of DOS anymore. What version of DOS do I need to install. I have a DOS 3.3 boot disc. will that work to get me in? I appreciate your help! This machine is old, but it only has about 50 operating hours. It was just left without power for too long. Hopefully with your help I can bring her back to life. Thanks Again.

    Honestly I don't know if the EZ path will run under dos3.3. Mine uses dos 6.6. Do you know how to make the computer boot from the A drive? If so try the dos 3.3 it won't hurt. The computer itself will boot and run the older dos just don't know if the EZ path will. Dos is a basic operating system that runs a computer. Windows is actually a graphical program to run dos commands with graphical icons. The Ezpath software will run under windows but there is no windows software (driver) to run the interface card for it.

    Steve,
    I tried a DOS 6.22. Machine booted, but when I tried to load EZPATH-ROMI software it told me I was using the incorrect version of DOS.You noted that your machine runs on DOS 6.6. I haven't been able to find a down loadable 6.6 version. My machine states that the processer is from 1994 and is a 386. What type of processor is your machine?

    Mine is a 96 with the 386 processor. The dos 6.6 was a typo I run dos 6.22. The version of the EZ path will determine what dos you need. You probably need DOS 3.1. I think I have a copy of it if you need it. My EZ path version is 250-21-687. Whats yours?
