Hi,

 

The following link shows its specs:

 

    https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-15-ay100-notebook-pc/12499456/document/c05282573

 

It ONLY has FreeDOS 2.0 and the command prompt IS DOS prompt. I does not have anything to start except DOS. If you wish to start with Windows, you have to get a license from Microsoft and install to your machine.

 

Regards.

BH

Hi,

 

I don't know. It is up to you. The following list tells you the functions (and meanings) of DOS commands.

 

       https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DOS_commands

 

Again, if you wish to run machine under Windows, you have to buy a license and install to you computer.

 

Regards.
