Booting from USB stick
I just got one of these.
I'm not going to run Windows on it. I don't want to and I don't have a license.
I tried to boot FreeDOS from a USB flash memory stick. I created it like this:
FreeDOS 1.0 USB Boot Image
. I cannot get it to boot on the nT-A3500.
The same stick boots on another random PC that I have here.
The Foxconn BIOS sees it and says
Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device
or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press any key
My BIOS is B11F1P01. I was hoping to boot FreeDOS and flash a fresher one.
The BIOS setup boot source options are complex. I tried several combinations. In the end, I tried to turn off anything with UEFI. This is DOS, after all. The boot options do refer to my USB device by name, so it must see it.
