Why Dosemu can not phisically access The harddrive, IDE or SATA, when some DOS compatible application is executed by running Dosemu? Why only RAM disks can be accessible?
It can, but not safely.dosemu normally provides a replacement for the DOS file system to safely use the Linux file system in a reasonably compatible manner.
You can enable direct hardware access in dosemu.conf for specific I/O ranges, etc, and run dosemu with root privileges to punch a hole through the kernel security & moderation layers, but you should think twice about doing so.
If you want to repair a HDD with DOS-based tools, make a bootable CD with fredos on it and use that to run them. Look at 'UNetbootin' for such support.
