I don't know what patch is being used to do it. I provided directly the DSKs already patched to Delta Soft.
But I remember an old patch util which I think that Martos created and that one had the same problem. Of course, a 
TXT file coming with the patcher should be added to do that.

And as I remember some words back then... was not HD normally starting in C: ? LOL

Be careful man next time! ;)

Btw, lessons before testing programs:

1. Disassemble it and see what it really does, that sure helps.
2. Keep your boot partition always backuped. It is the best.
