Quote from: angelcaio on 16:12, 14 January 22Hi. I try to install HDCPM in .img files. I have followed the steps in the manual to create them with the hex editor https://hexed.it Hi have select and format the CPMDSK01.IMG disk : But both optios 4. Boot sector information, 7. Manage boot sector and 8 Transfer CP/M to disk return: Error Invalid File System Partition table information return: Warning MBR not foundAny idea? Thanks
QuoteI have also tried to generate the file from WinApe, with the ACMEDOS ROM in memory, but it does not generate anything, although I have been able to copy the MAKEIMG.BAS and MAKEIMG.BIN files
QuoteIs it possible to download an 8MB .IMG file from somewhere to test it instead of the one I generated?
Quote from: d_kef on 13:14, 17 January 22That's true. Unfortunately only UNIDOS is able to produce the image file. I also did some tests with ACMEDOS and CubeMDOS and both fail.ACMEDOS doesn't save a file at all.CubemDOS saves a file that is 0KB.In all cases the time needed to finish was about 1.5 hour.I've attached two image files in the first post of the topic.CPMDSK01.IMG is bootable and contains all the files of the 3 CP/M Plus system disks.CPMDSK02.IMG is empty (formatted) and can also be used as a template.d_kef

Quote from: GUNHED on 00:19, 23 January 22For HDCPM the tool takes 1,5 hours (using UniDOS) to create a 9 MB file.Instead of waiting 1,5 hours would it be possible to attach this file here and use the PC to copy it on the SF2 mass-medium?... and this was my post #3000.
Quote from: TotO on 15:48, 23 January 22Have you tested to have four master partitions and not one primary and three slaves on the DOM?
Quote from: angelcaio on 15:36, 23 January 22My experience with HDCPM:1.- In WinApe under Windows 10 and Windows 11 with CPMDSK0x.IMG into the DOM:All four drives are recognized and show the directory and when a file is created or copied it appears in the directory and can be read. But when you exit CP/M and re-enter with |HDCPM, this file is gone!
Quote from: angelcaio on 15:36, 23 January 224.- In real hardware: CPC 464 (big keys) with X-MEM and X-MASS with the DOM:- With the DOM formatted in FAT and with the four CPMDSK0x.IMG files: The CPC does not start- With the DOM partitioned with four unformatted partitions: The CPC does not start- With the DOM without partitioning: Everything works perfectly, after HDMGR.COM is used, but with a single C: (It would be great for me that, at this time, the HDMGR.COM utility would allow partitioning)

Quote from: zhulien on 08:04, 27 January 22where does the 8mb hard drive limit come from within CP/M?
QuoteDSM is one less than the total number of blocks on the drive.DSM must be less than or equal to 7FFFH. If the disk uses 1024 byte blocks (BSH=3, BLM~=7), DSM must be less than or equal to OOFFH. The product BLS* (DSM+l) is the total number of bytes the drive holds and must be within the capacity of the physical disk.It does not include the reserved operating system tracks.
Quote from: d_kef on 09:38, 27 January 22So I chose an 8MB disk size basically following the rule of thumb It seemed to me a good compromise between disk size and memory reserved.
Quote from: d_kef on 17:33, 29 January 22 Added MAKEIMG.EXE utility for creating an image file from within SYMBOS.That's my first attempt to code anything with Quigs so be gentle with me
