Hardware Compatibility with MS-DOS 6.22

4. Hardcard If you upgraded your system from MS-DOS 6 or 6.2, your system uses its Hardcard drive as its startup drive, and you want to use DoubleSpace on that drive, see See below, part C. For additional Hardcard information, see the following: a) Hardcard II If you can't use Plus Development Hardcard II or Hardcard II XL when running EMM386.EXE, specify the exclude (x=) switch to prevent EMM386 from conflicting with the card's BIOS address. To configure EMM386, run MEMMAKER. b) Hardcard 40 or Passport If you are using Hardcard 40 or a Passport removable disk, and you have a DEVICE command in your CONFIG.SYS file for PLUSDRV.SYS, disable or remove the DEVICE command. Then run MS-DOS 6.22 Setup. After Setup is complete, reenable or restore the DEVICE command for PLUSDRV.SYS. Make it the last line in the file. c) If you upgraded your system from MS-DOS 6 or 6.2, installed DoubleSpace   on your Hardcard, and are now unable to access your newly compressed drive, try the following: 1) Add a DRVSPACE /MOUNT command to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file to mount the compressed volume file on the Hardcard every time you start your computer. 2) Or, ensure that there is at least one device driver (for example, ANSI.SYS) loaded in your CONFIG.SYS file AFTER the ATDOSXL.SYS driver but BEFORE the DRVSPACE.SYS driver.
