I'm gonna try to boot DOS on a school computer

    Sadly I don't have the resources to do so at the moment, but I plan on installing it to a 512 MB flash drive (is the file size too big?) and then boot the school computer to it. Since the school is dumb enough to automatically try to boot from a flash drive upon starting up, that part will be easy. Not sure how I'd install DOS onto the flash drive though. I'm thinking maybe I can set the flash drive as the disk space for a VM and install the OS that way.

    EDIT: I may be able to install windows 3.1 onto it if it works. Should I do that?

    EDIT 2:
    I'm gonna go with MS DOS 7.10 as it supports FAT32 and I can use a flash drive larger than 2 GiB if I care to do so. I will also be able to boot up Windows 3 with it if I choose to do so.

    Well unfortunately my school changed over to little network clients that have no harddrive, so I can't install much anymore.

    You could still boot it from a flash drive. Just press F10 during the boot process.

    It has no boot sequence. Goes straight into a Citrix log in screen.

    I'm pretty sure they do have one, but I'm not too great at computer.

    It should, they may have gotten something specific to prevent interrupting it or something.

    I don't know WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS! If you are trying to sabotage (what I think you are trying to do) a school computer than put a tyre over it, pour gasoline on it, and light it.

    I'm installing a replicate of Microsoft's original OS onto a flash drive, and I'm gonna boot the computer up with that OS instead of windows 7. It'll be pretty hilarious to see some of the reactions of the people in my class.
