IBM PC DOS 4.00 (06-17-1988) 4.00

Category: OS
Year: 1988
Description:This is the original release of PC-DOS 4.00. Bugs and all! It includes two 720k disk images in raw/winimage format. IBM DOS 4.00 was IBM's first in-house development effort with DOS. Most current downloads out there claiming to be 4.00, are actually 4.01. Do not confuse 4.01 with this version. IBM shipped 4.01 without changing the "4.00" version IDs, either in the kernel, the command processor, within the documentation, or even the exterior packaging. As a result, there are only two ways to tell the difference between 4.00 and 4.01: 1: IBM's floppy disk label will read "Version 4.00" or "Version 4.01" 2: 4.01 will have some files dated 08-03-1988.
