Can you describe what happens. If it boots to C: then you should be able to type dir C: and list the files on your USB drive.

A: is the "bootfloppy" the *.img content
B: is nothing

Sounds like you have the wrong codepage loaded in DOS.
but trying to access C: ends up with unrecognized characters in folders.

more or less same problem i made my bootable usbkey ( ntfs ) with grub4dos and a freedos image , all works fine but i can see only A and B .
Is there a way or workaround to navigate inside the usbkey , internal hdd (sata)or other devices like optical device ???
I tried with RMPrepUsb procedure and the result is the same
Thanks so much for your help

Have you tried using something like Parted Magic?
Maybe something here?
Supplying the correct drivers may help, find the site that supports your setup; ex.

You need a NTFS filesystem driver.
There are quite a few, some Commercial, some Freeware/Free.
A suitable list/discussion is here:
Whether any of them will actually work specifically on FreeDOS is up to you to find out.
