The hierarchical file system wasn't introduced until MS-DOS 2.0.
Versions prior to that were flat filesystem just like CP/M.


  At the time FAT12 was introduced, DOS did not support hierarchical
  directories, and the maximum number of files was typically limited
  to a few dozen. Hierarchical directories were introduced in MS-DOS
  version 2.0.
