Also post your config.sys and autoexec.bat. They are used to load the network and filesharing drivers.

Why does it have to run dos?

We run our CNC off an old XP machine, with a processor slower than my phone lol

Not your only problem I'm sure but start here:

In your config.sys you have a line:
BUFFERS=30DEVICE=C:\NET\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\NET
. Is that a copy error? If not you should have two lines:

BUFFERS=30
DEVICE=C:\NET\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\NET

Is the other machine exactly the same model? Can you provide the config from there as well?

Do you get any errors during the boot and configuration loading process? I cannot recall how to boot msdos step by step or log the boot if I ever knew, I think it was a case of rapid alternate use of the pause/break button and spacebar to continue each step with a notepad and pen.

Also, what output do you get from the 'net start' command if you run that on the workstation after boot?

That was a typo when it boots up i get the error 7361 : ipx or netbios must be running in order to load network services. The same as when i do net start.

The other machine has a different motherboard but still runs dos 6.22
Here are the files for it

Autoexec.bat

Is that the only error during config and autoexec? you really need to pause/resume at the right moment/s during boot to note them.

If you want a quick fix, you could just try running the same configuration files in the first machine. Remember to keep backups tho.
