Well... from the description above, the first thing that comes to mind is
that the 'Executive', like all of the Osborne machines is a CP/M machine,
and will likely never run any form of MicroSquish DOS... B^}

In more general terms, the message indicates that the unit is unable to
read the boot sector(s), but without a proper set of diskettes it will be
difficult to troubleshoot reliabily...
