Warning: ASUS motherboards and FreeDOS!
ASUS motherboards which contain FreeDOS for their
CrashFreeBIOS function sometimes ship with an incomplete
FreeDOS installer on the CD-ROM. Do not try to install
FreeDOS with it - and be careful when rebooting your system
with the disc in the drive. Use the CD-ROM only for BIOS
flashing as intended. Otherwise you could render your
system unbootable. See also Technote211.
