This system does not support fullscreen mode

    I am trying to run an exe file from HP that will make a bios upgrade floppy.
    When I run it, it opens a 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem window and then I get an
    error message showing the file and its path I am trying to run, with the
    error message: "This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose 'Close'
    to terminate the application.". Then I can choose "Close" or I can choose
    "Ignore" and when I have hit the ignore button three times it exits anyway.
    Anyone got any idea what the problem is?

    Yes, Vista does not support full screen (DOS-like) command windows, which
    that app is apparently set to run in.
    You can fiddle with a shortcut to see if you can adjust the properties, or
    run the app on an older version of Windows.

  3. Since it is only floppy operation you may want to google `dosbox`. then
    once dos box is loaded just type..

    mount c c:\your folder
    mount a a:\
