Good morning, in the indications given on the site: 1 - Insert CF memory card into the cartridge and start the computer 2 - When the boot menu appears, press the Esc button to boot using the default configuration 3 - The computer boots into the MSX-BASIC 4 - Type CALL FDISK and press Enter ⏎ to run the partitioning program 5 - Create one or more partitions using the FDISK interface: did I not understand how to proceed with the creation of more partitions in the CF with the FDISK program? Then, you need to copy Nextor system files to the CF card partition. Can you proceed with a PC, or do you have to do it with MSX from floppy disks? thank you

Copying Nextor's files, as well as games, music, utilities and so on onto the partitioned CF card should be done on PC as it's faster. Even if you create more than one partition, Nextor will auto-mount only the first one by default. Normally, one 4Gb partition should be enough for daily use.

The user interface is quite intuitive. Type in Basic:

call fdisk

and press Enter. Then choose the appropriate options.

Update, create the partitions in the CF with the command the program FDISK. Copied all files needed by Nextor to the root directory. Even if I haven't entered any Roms yet, about ten games have appeared in the menu, tested and working in my MSX 2 NMS8280! Do you need to do something else as an operation for the correct use of the C2? In the online tutorial the operations are also indicated: Write Nextor IDE BIOS, Write FMPAC BIOS, Fully erase FlashROM chip. Are these operations necessary for C2? How do I insert new ROM files, just copy them to the root directory or do you need to create a folder inside the latter? Why were there games already in C2?

I have inserted new decompressed roms in the main directory of the CF, but they are not displayed in the carnivore2 menu. Do you have to do something to load the roms in the C2 system?

you have to run c2man software (you can find it on github https://github.com/RBSC/Carnivore2/tree/master/Util ) and flash those roms to C2 flash so they become available

OK thank you. Unfortunately the C2, after inserting the Nextor files in the main directory of the CF, displays a menu with the games loaded, moreover not by me! How can I exit this menu and start C2MAN or SofàRun? Should I do something to reset the system, FULLY ERASE ROMS CHIP? Did you also understand that you have already inserted games?

The seller may have loaded some roms, the bootmenu always shows these roms as well as the default entry which includes IDE, RAM, SCC and FM-PAC. The IDE part will allow you to boot into Nextor.
