Will DOS be able to load USB devices? I thought this only worked when I booted off the device using some BIOS magic. > Or use a winpe bootable CD.

This is what I have readily available: - Computer running FreeBSD - USB CDRW-drive - 512 MiB USB flash drive - A 1.44 MiB FreeDOS floppy image with 111 kiB free space - A FreeDOS iso9660 image - A 784 kiB DOS executable for flashing my BIOS Using these I need to make some sort of bootable DOS device (either CD or USB flash drive) that contains the above mentioned BIOS upgrade utility. Could I either: - Get the BIOS utility onto the ISO file without braking the boot code - Use the floppy image to make a bootable USB disk somehow? Svein Halvor
