Thanks for your reply.
I tried to install Freedos from here: http://www.freedos.org/download/ , the 1.1 version
But I get a different results, like a 4 option boot and different "freedos versions" that appear different. When the laptop came, it would boot directly to that screen - so no boot options, and nothing else. Is there a way to replicate that with a newer build ?

Someone familiar with FreeDOS may come along and offer advice, it's many years since I worked with DOS, and then not specifically FreeDOS.
I won't have time to research today, but my first thought would be to see if there is a C:\FDCONFIG.SYS file that includes a menu. If there is, and there is also a default CONFIG.SYS file (which FDCONFIG overrides), you may just be able to rename FDCONFIG and get a standard boot.

Please note that I haven't verified the download, however Symantec cleared it on my work computer, so usual considerations on unknown software is probably ok.
