Any low-level DOS heads out there? I've a question!

Hey! I'm trying to automate an F-DISK and FORMAT, and have already gotten it to the point

where the PC boots, FDisks and formats automatically.

Here's the thing - when I'm auto-Fdisking an already used drive, the drive labels

will at some point be different. Can I run something in a batch file

that will tell me the label of the C: drive before I F-disk?

Remember all this is running from a boot disk in A!!!

Thanks! Frank


  • Hi Frank,

    There is a simple DOS command: 'label'

    This shows you the label of the current drive and allows you to specify a new one. I am not quite sure what you mean in your message, but maybe this is of help.
