Safe Mode. Just load Video, File and network drivers and allow direct access to int13
so fdisk and format can run so user can diag/fix it.
Curious if ReactOS has a an Emergency Boot Disk
system that it can make ? Perhaps, keep a Freedos 1.44m
disk image and allow suer to rawrite it when needed. Or even a
dual bootable Freedos partition (FAT16) with the appropriate recovery tools on it.
