?? Has Anyone Been Able to make a bootable Microdrive ??
If so, please provide the details (especially the type/manufacture of CF reader) on how you accomplished this Truly Amazing Feat!!!
For me, I've tried the following hardware:
USB CF/SM Combo Card Reader (Unknown/Win98SE)
PCMCIA Card Reader (Microtech CF+II/Win98SE, Win95B)
Here's the secret ritual I performed in my vain attempts to create a bootable microdrive:
FDISK (create new partition on disk 2)
REBOOT (just cuz I like to sit around waiting for Windows to boot)
FORMAT D: /S
Fire-up RANISH (2.4) to set the disk's partition bootable. (F5 -> B -> F2 -> ESC)
The USB reader was a complete failure. Didn't work for either the microdrive or the stock 32mb CF card.
The PCMCIA reader (using my Fujitsu Point 510) did work for making the stock 32mb CF card bootable. But it did not work for setting up the microdrive!!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated by myself and any other knucklehead who tries this in the future!!
