In some BIOS if using a USB Pendrive, FreeDOS detects that the BIOS reports a hard drive, which mounted as C: \ the problem is that C: \ is not the Pendrive, is the first partition of the first hard disk installed!

only need to write a single byte on "C:\" to damage the partition.

I am sorry for my very BAD English.

    What computer brand or BIOS version? Is the USB flash drive being booted as a floppy, zip drive, or hard drive? need more information to generate test and possible fix or work around. Thank you.
