Version History:

Released parallel to the MS-DOS® 5.0 base release, the 5.0 upgrade was identical in features and utilities with the exception it would not install without an existing version of DOS already on the hard drive. This was the first non-bootable upgrade release, requiring the system to boot to the existing DOS installation and then running setup from the 5.0 upgrade disk 1.
