March 29, 2011  |  By assman

 |  Version: DOS-on-USB 2

Pros

Easy setup
All the files you need to boot into DOS
Helpful instructions
Provides DOS without floppy

Cons

Wish I found this sooner

Thanks so much for this tool. I used it to configure Intel's LAN boot agent, which only works in DOS. Tried everything else before this simple solution.

"No mention of NON-SATA AND NON-NTFS (FAT) program only!"

October 27, 2010  |  By JayDubThaHacker

 |  Version: DOS-on-USB 2

Pros

I suppose I should give it 2 stars because I used it (maybe??) years ago to access some old PC. I remember it sort of working. IT DOES BOOT INTO DOS, and it does warn you not to use it if you have an NTFS Windows setup. So I got UltraBootCD instead..

Cons

Literally, this is useless to anyone with SATA, ATA, hardware drives and/or NTFS (2000,XP,Vista and 7 typically use this system) harddisks. FAT and IDE only are supported by this program. I've tried several times. So this will soon be like ZIP disks.

Summary

Useful for IDE and FAT systems, thanks James. Useless for any others. C+

"Works exactly as described"

September 20, 2010  |  By zextron

 |  Version: DOS-on-USB 2

Pros

If you just need to boot just format the usb drive with the executable. If you need DOS follow the instructions carfully.

Cons

Not really.

Summary

Great if you just need a bootable USB drive. You need to get repair and diagnostic utilities elsewhere.
