Hi gaula82, I've succesfully done the FAT16 SD-Card through "ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64.iso" on my laptop. Here an example step-by-step:

sudo su
umount /media/user/MSXFAT16/
mkfs.vfat -F 16 /dev/sdb1 -n MSXFAT16

*** remove the SD-Card ***

*** re-insert the SD-Card ***

cd /ocm_backup/
cp OCM-BIOS.DAT /media/user/MSXFAT16/
cp * /media/user/MSXFAT16/

The /ocm_backup/ folder had:

I also had pdoblems creating a fat16 partition (in Linux). The problem was I was creating FAT32 partitions all the time (assuming partition type has something to do with it, but GNU utilities could not care less about the partition type). I realised I need to use -F 16 (from man mkfs) as per KdL's post.

Try fsck -v, it should tell you which FAT you are using (but only with -v).

I'm using Zemmix Neo, which will boot to BASIC. but obviously a wrongly created fat partition didn't work. After getting a FAT16 partition, works like charm :-)
