In case it wasn't clear, I am not able to get it installed yet, but I am able to boot the FreeDOS installer from a DVD.

I also found these instructions - randomcomputerbits.blogspot.com/2008/02/… but the results were the same.

I was able to burn the DVD to create an installer disk. Then, following the general set of instructions as found at freedos.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/VirtualBox_-_Chapter_5, I can get to the point where it is about to install the FreeDOS kernel and that fails. I am attempting to install it to the second HD which is 250gb.

I am running El Capitan. I do have a DVD drive. Additionally, I have an advantage of having a second internal HD (250gb) which I can dedicate in part or in whole for this purpose. I can format it however I like. I can certainly create my own bootable DVD. Can you describe how, exactly, you did that?

My hard drive appears to be operating just fine. I simply want to be able to use SpinRite for it's problem prevention and maintenance capabilities. Mac Pro Mid 2012.

My purpose for installing FreeDOS is to be able to run SpinRite on my Mac. Unfortunately, VirtualBox, VMWare, etc. block much of what SpinRite does. I was simply hoping to find a solution that would eliminate the need to pull the drive out of the machine and hook it up to a PC.

Check /etc/bootpd.plist and see if you can grab a default copy from somewhere else.
