FlashBoot: Install DOS-based MiniOS to USB thumbdrive

FlashBoot can install DOS to USB thumbdrive and make it bootable. You can use this option to quick-test FlashBoot without supplying external data (OS installation CD, ISO image file etc).

DOS on USB is useful for upgrading BIOS on your notebook or motherboard (just add latest BIOS file and vendor-supplied flash update utility like AFUDOS). Also it can be used for running DOS applications and games without emulation.
