I formatted my flash drive using HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool with MS-DOS 6.22 system files but I could not boot up from it. I made the necessary changes in my BIOS in order to boot from an USB device but after restart I got a non-system disk error. I have tested the image file with floppy disk and it worked fine. How do I know my USB flash drive supports booting from it in general. I do not know its vendor. Actually it is a noname (general disk) stuff, I have won it as a prize with some stupid game. :whistle: I took a look at the drive in Disk management section and it was displayed as an active, primary partition. Any idea?

I don't understand, wouldn't USB support be reliant on your BIOS? So you're saying that even though you loaded a 6.22 boot on your USB, it couldn't load because it couldn't recognize its own drive?
