Failure to create main directory

If you enter in a bogus main directory (eg, F: on a machine without F:) in the initial setup screen, the ballot station will prompt to insert election media but you never can.  The system is then in an unrecoverable state.  The drive should be checked at setup time, not startup.  Furthermore, you should not require election media to change setup parameters, like serial number.
Related issue to slip in.  The system does behave a little better if you enter a bogus smart card reader port in that it puts you back to the setup screen.  But why let them out of the setup screen with a bogus port name in the first place.  It should be a drop-down list.
