|Yes Sata only using a USB Floppy. So far I have an sata ssd that under windows 7 I created a 2GB primary partition and made it active formatted FAT16 using partition wizard. boot from usb floppu 6.22 install and escape F3. use fdisk and can see the 2GB partition assigned drive "C" and other wierd stuff for my other drives like size|
-167, left alone went back to prompt. sys c: system transfered then went back to windows and copied previously saved dos directory to the FAT16 drive. Restart and boots fine from Hd, various commands work fine like format, diskcopy. Dosshell from 6.0 works too. But while booted from HD fdisk halts system (remember worked booting from floppy) also the CDrom still does not work.(no drive letter assigned) The drive is empty but that should not matter. I will paste the start up files, Da menu program is installed.
LH /L:0 C:\DOS\SMARTDRV.EXE /X
LH /L:3,27952 C:\DOS\mscdex.exe /D:mscd001
DEVICEHIGH /L:3,12048 =C:\DOS\SETVER.EXE
DEVICEHIGH /L:1,9072 =C:\DOS\ANSI.SYS
As you see I am using "gcdrom.sys" which supports sata cd drives. I am running a ASUS P6X58D_Premium with a I-7 965ex, 12 GIG tri channdel ddr3 and the multi core does not seem to present a problem, my sata controllers are set to AHCI pass through. Have not messed with drivers for Marvel SATA III, NEC USB 3 controllers. A little over a week ago I was booted from floppy and ran fdisk attempting to add partitions to the FAT16 drive which damaged the partition on my windows SATA III SSD...OOPS :-) Good thing I have a back up image. So some how A:\ boot was able to access the SATA III HD to damage it?
