Yup, I've been all over the internet trying to find a solution for this already, so came here as a last resort. Apologies for being a pest.
So, situation is I have a Socket7 machine I want to run as a DOS 6.22 machine. I have no floppy disks, so am trying to make a bootable CF card. Here's the run down:
- Brand new Verbatim 2GB card.
- Card detects fine in BIOS of socket7 machine. It detects it as a hard drive, can see all the space. Happy pants.
- Card detects fine in windows. Can format, copy files, etc.
- Following this procedure: http://theinstructionlimit.com/installing-ms- … -to-ide-adapter
- Card is set up as the mounted volume on the virtual box. No worries there.
- Card is unmounted in Windows.
Problem occurs when trying to format the card with DOS. It's almost like it can't write to it at all. It tries, but comes up with this crap:
I'm trying to kill the partition in Fdisk, but it's not being my friend with the label either:
Doing in a high level format in Windows as FAT32 works fine, but that's obviously no good to us here.
Anyone have any idea how I can get this thing running as bootable in my damn Pentium-s?
here's the Vbox configuration. Pretty normal:
