MyIDE (+flash) SUPPORT on atarimax!

Recommended Posts

Mr. Atari -

 

Ive got a CompactFlash IDE hooked into my internal MyIDE board.

 

I had some issues and am going to start from scratch again formatting it - Could you give me some suggestions on the best utility to use to start over again - Will the 'sector/head' utility report back correctly with regard to setting my sectors and such?

 

Im also confused on where th 'disk imaging' should start????

That is a great setup.

Ok. best is to use Util32.ATR you can download from my site.

Follow the quickguide for the 3.2F interface. This is a fast and

clean setup.

 

Images (or ATR's). Check the number of cylinders of your

card reported by Fdisk. To enable images, you need 512

cylinders minimum. In this case cylinder 256-512 are reserved

for images.

 

Now, If you have gargabe on cylinder-0, forcing the OS to start

the HD and crashing the system you need to do this:

power up without CF-card. When running plugin the card (do not

press reset) and run fdisk. Do a autodetect (if not asked) and

save&exit. This will clear the bootarea of the card.

 

Cheers,

Sijmen.
