    How does is it have "DOS" Pre-installed?

    No one has really used DOS on their PC's since Windows 95/98 era?


    If it isn't DOS, then what exactly is it? Its a newer 6th gen Core i3, most likely you already have Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 already installed on it, or should have anyways. Only other option is some version of Linux.

    Yes currently everyone using windows 8 or windows 10 but that OS one have to install from own side because hp and other brands are providing laptops with and without windows OS installed and i have bought laptop without windows OS and thats why i have faced this issue, anyway thanks for your suggestion.

    Have a look through this, it may be a UEFI bios/GPT format issue. I have that going on with a netbook just now.

    Where did you buy the laptop? As others have pointed out, it shouldn't have come loaded with DOS... get them to sort it out, there's no way you should have to yourself, especially not pay for it!
