    FreeDos


    Hi,

    I created a bootable USB freeDos and copy BIOS update to it. I can boot into FreeDos. However, I cannot see the file in the root directory. The BIOS update executible file are also in a sub directory. Nevertheless, I cannot get the executible to work. I get the message Bad command or filename. I can clearly see the file on a windows xp PC in both directories.

    Can you help;

    thx
