    Please don't write in all caps. Also, that photo is meaningless. As long as the bootdisk contains nothing more recent than MS-DOS 6.22 that computer should be able to boot from it. Does it contain a harddisk? Because it sounds like the harddisk might have crashed, or perhaps something on the motherboard wore out. To be honest, I don't really know. At the DOSBox (a DOS emulator) forums there are several people who're into building systems using old hardware. Perhaps they can help. Link: https://www.vogons.org/viewforum.php?f=53.
