Same here on my X22.

I think it must be on a primary partition.  (In my case, I
also moved the save2dsk.bin around by hand, because the IBM
utility put in on a _large_ primary FAT partition instead of
the small one that I created for it.  With the large one, it
simply took the BIOS too long a time to find and use it.)
