MSDOS8 SYS (Miscellaneous)

posted by mvojvodic(R), 04.04.2012, 12:13

To make RAWRITE format floppy images and copy them
to floppies, you can use HD-COPY 2.5E. It is freeware
with TUI interface. It works under real mode DOS and
all Windows versions, including Windows 7. I did not
test it under Windows 8.
Its IMG format is RAWRITE type (uncompressed raw
diskette image having HEX EB at offset 0). HD-COPY
uncompressed IMG, WinImage, UltraISO, and PowerISO
uncompressed IMA, Virtual PC VFD, VMWare FLP, and
MagicISO BIF images are identical by contents.
For boot sectors handling you can use Bart's MakeBoot
2.0. It supports floppy images, so you can use it
without diskette unit. I made 2.88 MB bootable
floppy image using MakeBoot, but I do not have 2.88
MB diskette unit.
There is no SYS utility in Windows XP, so I had
to download DataLight ROM-DOS 4.20.1594 Single User
Version (last freeware version). It has SYSXP.EXE
for Windows XP.
If you use Total Commander, maybe this section of
my multiarc.ini will help

[Raw Diskette Image]
ID=EB
IDPos=0
Extension=bif,flp,ima,img,vcp,vfd
; All raw diskette images have ID=EB at IDPos 0, except
; HD-COPY 2.x compressed IMG images which have it at IDPos=187
; (187 dec=BB hex)
; HD-COPY 2.x by Oliver Fromme makes compressed IMG images
; by default. Such images are not supported by this MultiArc
; addon. To make uncompressed IMG images one has to use
; command line switch /I- or use this switch in HD-COPY.CFG
; to make that option permanent (the letter I must be uppercase).
;
; RAWRITE and other DOS and Linux raw floppy image utilities
; always produce uncompressed IMG images.
;
; HD-COPY uncompressed IMG, WinImage, UltraISO, and PowerISO
; uncompressed IMA, Virtual PC VFD, VMWare FLP, and MagicISO BIF
; images are identical by contents.
;
; WinImage IMZ images are not supported. They have to be unzipped
; and then they can be unpacked by this MultiArc addon.
;
; Moenkemeier's VGA-COPY 6.xx compresses its VCP images using
; ARJ if it can find ARJ.EXE in the PATH. Both uncompressed and
; compressed VCP images have VCP extension. To make uncompressed
; VCP images you have to make ARJ unavailable to VGA-COPY.
; Only uncompressed VCP images are supported by this MultiArc
; addon, so compressed ones have to be unarchived previously using
; ARJ.
