Can't install ROSA Fresh R5 (Gnome) from USB on legacy system

I am trying to install latest ROSA Fresh on my legacy computer (BIOS is not EFI-compatible, released in 2008) from USB flash but I can't do it.
With USB-flash prepared by rosa-imagewriter (EFI), I get message:
"This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press any key to try again..."
To make sure that the computer can be booted from USB-flash I tried to prepare flash by using rufus v2.0 (https://github.com/pbatard/rufus). With "Add fixes for old BIOSes (extra partition, align, etc.)" option checked I've prepared the flash with Ubuntu 14.10 and booted from it without issue.
But with ROSA Fresh I get the following errors:
dmesg: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc
dracut Warning: Could not boot
dracut Warning: dracut: FATAL: Faled to mount block device of live image
dracut Warning: dracut: Refusing to continue
dracut Warning: /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist
(Flash device named sdc in the system, and sdc1 partition contains OS files.
mount /dev/sdc1 /sysroot
