You thought the day would never come again, but hey, here we are. You're welcome. Now, what are we talking about? FreeDOS - a test release has been, uh, released for FreeDOS 1.1.

I can't count how mant times at the shop I'd have a drive that was supposedly DOA when in reality for one reason or another Windows simply refused to mark a handful of bad sectors as such and would instead dump OS data on them, thus causing crashes.

a new drive with bad sectors (visible to the OS and not dealed with by the drives firmware) is DOA .
