Euhm, I think this one fits into my list of recurring Thinkpad related
memdisk problems. As seen in this post:
Depending on the memdisk version (and likely FreeDOS) the symptoms may be
different. I've made other posts wrt. Thinkpads (xSeries/Netfinitty
BIOSes) and memdisk.
(hoping to one day being able to flash my Thinkpad BIOS using memdisk)
