Somehow I stumbled upon a set of USB_DOS drivers that seem to work on every
PC I test them on. I build and sell PCS (new ones) but I have 5 old PCs
here from different MFRs both Intel and AMD and my current DOS master disk boots and mounts as many USB sticks as I plug in and on all my PCS both
OLD and NEW.

I use the equivalent format and sys.

4) copy all aditional files that I want on the flash drive.

Same here.

I can test this on another USB and see what happens.
