Hi,

I'm posting the question here, as repro-factory isn't working at this moment (best wishes Eric!).
Somehow I end up with msxdo2.sys/command2.com/autoexec.bat at my SD. I'm doing something wrong, naturally, but anyone who can help me... please!

I boot the cartridge without a SD present.
I end up in dos A:\
then I insert the SD card (formatted FAT, 2 GB, and with one file on it: duck.dsk)
Install
Option 7 (2048 MB)
System disk A: option 1 (2DD 720KB)
System disk B: option 1 (2dd 720 KB)

Then it starts formatting A: and afterwards B: starts copying files from A: to B: (copysys2)

But this way I end up with a SD with just DOS on it.

I tried A:\install.com duck.dsk

But that didn't help.

I'm doing something wrong, obviously... Does someone have the manual? Or can someone help me out?

Thanks!

Niels

PS: long ago Eric send me a mail helping me out on this (2 years ago), but after migrating to my new PC It seems I have lost this email... And I don't want to ask him at this moment... so... anyone? :-)

For me this cartridge is wonderful specially the emulation and Loading of Virtual Floppy Disk is a blazing fast and the extra feature (COVOX) is a bonus.

BTW anybody in the forum knows how to use the 8bits DAC from COVOX especially a simple ASM rutine will be enough. I don't want to hack the examples programs provided for REPROFACTORY.
