Dos boot Hard drive failure

I'm trying to boot an harddrive into dos 6.22, i format the harddrive after booting into dos 6.22 form a disk, i run format c:/s. after that if i reboot on the disk, a can acces the harddrive, and see the command.com, but i can't boot on the harddrive, i always receive the message "hard drive failure"
What's wrong?

    DOS 6.22 needs a fat 16 partition (2 GB upper limit); if that's ok, try booting from the floppy and typing fdisk /mbr and then sys c:

    The above shouldn't be used if you're using a partition manager, have a dual install, or more than 4 (I think it was) partitions.

    It's possible the MBR is damaged.
