comment How to access Windows Registry from actual real MS-DOS
"The Windows registry was created long after DOS was discontinued." - Not true, NT 4.0 and Windows 95 had a registry, DOS wasn't official discontinued until 2000.

I've had multiple instances where a bad optical or hard drive interferes with the BIOS hard drive detection, which is done before you enter Setup typically.

comment What is the purpose of using a large ping packet?
PPPoE (used often with DSL) adds an 8 byte header, so the MTU for PPPoE connections is typically 1492.

comment MAMP : socket problems for external ressources
If you mean Apache was already launched, that's cool, and needed, but it must be configured to do what I mentioned above. You'll need to dive into the configuration directories and learn how to enable modules.

comment BIOS not detecting working SATA hard drive
The initial spin-up cycle of hard drive stresses them, and they draw more power during that time. It's possible a teetering hard drive could kick the bucket at that point. If it doesn't work in another system you are looking at things like trying to replace the PCB on the drive or professional, expensive data recovery.

comment ODD Drive detected as hard drive in USB to SATA
Have you ever had an optical drive working with this converter? It may be that the converter doesn't support optical drives, especially if it's a cheap converter.
