MS-DOS 6 and 6.2 Boot-Sector Identification Tag Is "MSDOS5.0"
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft MS-DOS operating system versions 6.0, 6.2, 6.21, 6.22
The MS-DOS 6.0 and 6.2 original equipment manufacturer (OEM) boot-sector
identification tag is "MSDOS5.0," the same as for MS-DOS 5.0.
MS-DOS 6.0 and 6.2 use the same boot-sector identification tag as MS-DOS
5.0 to maintain compatibility with some third-party programs.
When you use the VER command or interrupt 21h function 3306h (Get MS-DOS
