OK I am at a loss on how to get a working Win98 image on a microdrive, using only a Win2K laptop. I have used the diskprobe utility as others have suggested, and have only had success writing the debian rescue image to the microdrive (via the PCMCIA adapter). I have tried to write other disk images (win98 disk images, toms root boot, etc) and get a drive error on boot (or just a blinking cursor)
I have also tried formatting the microdrive (FAT16), then copying all of the files off of a win98 boot floppy (xcopy /c /h /e /r /k A: E:) and then using dskprobe to set the bootable flag.. but that just gives me a drive error on boot (or blinking cursor)
So basically the only thing I can do with my machine is run the debian rescue disk image. The only way right now I think this would work is if somebody, who had a working Win98 microdrive, could use the dskprobe utility to read in the entire disk as a .dsk image...
(the vmware option somebody else mentioned is not an option because VMware does not support PCMCIA)
Has anyone been able to do what I am trying to do, successfully?
