DOSFS problems

Hi, all
I'm trying to mount the primary master HD on a PC motherboard 
(BSP=pc386) but the operation fails with all disks I connect. All of 
them are DOS-formatted. Using different mix DOS versions/HD model 
doesn't solve the problem.

Tracking the code I see that RTEMS uses the BPB within the MBR but finds 
wrong data.
I verify also that RTEMS always reads the data effectively on the HD, so 
the problem seems to be the initialization of the HD. Correct ?

If yes, can anyone kindly explain to me how to initialize it ?
Thank you in advance.
