Getting Ultimate Boot CD (FreeDOS) to boot on an Asus E35M1-I

leave a comment »

Select “Boot no UMB (defensive)” and accept all the defaults.

I was using a USB cd-rom drive with one SATA hard disk. BIOS had the hard drive controller set to AHCI at Auto speed (the controller is capable of 6.0 Gbps).

Ultimate BootCD and FreeDOS and GA-X48-DQ6 Experiences

leave a comment »

I have a Gigabyte GA-X48-DQ6 with my drives running in AHCI mode. FreeDOS on UBCD doesn’t boot on this without some changes.

  • Disable RAID or AHCI in the BIOS. Remember to set it back or else Windows gets all mad.
  • When booting FreeDOS, at the memory settings menu, select optimal not silent or quiet. It should be the second option. Make sure to boot without APM.
