dos2.41 doesn't take more tpa. I've hone some test with this because I had tpa problems. I tried different combination and found out it was the msxdos2.sys ver 2.31 that uses more tpa. I now use sys version 2.20 and version 2.41. There is even more tpa free then with command version 2.20.

If you boot with IDE, you should have floppy on C: (if you made 2 partitions). Copy MSXDOS2 from this floppy to drive A: (in basic) and reset...

Please tell me how to copy files from C: to A: in MSX Basic?

Thank you!

copy "C:*.*" to "A:"

You might wanna add a backslash (or Yen sign, in case of a Japanese MSX), so it becomes this:

copy "C:\*.*" to "A:\".

Difference between them is this:
'd:\' points to the root directory (base directory, the uppermost in a directory tree) of the specified drive 'd'.
'd:' points to the current directory on drive denoted by 'd'. So for example, you were in MSX-DOS2.

MSX-DOS 2.30 Copyright by ASCII (or something like this)


type 'cd utils'.


type 'C:'.


type BASIC.


You're in BASIC now. If you blindly say 'copy "c:*.*" to "a:"', all files in 'C:\' are copied to 'A:\UTILS'.

Ow, and please don't use IDEFDISK.COM. Use FDISK310 instead. Note that your IDE BIOS must be up to date, for Flash cards to work.

copy "C:\*.*" to "A:\".

Slightly off topic but does MSX-DOS require the quotation marks and the 'to' attribute in the copy command or can you just simply write'copy C:\*.* A:\' as in MS-DOS?

Heh, I've had this problem as well, a few times, on my SCSI system... very annoying.

I don't remember how I solved it back then. I think that if you make a backup first, you can start experimenting.

First experiment: overwrite the partition table with exactly the same data and see if things are better. Do this on your copy of course.

I have already to make that but I haven't make cause I will make a backup of my fat 16 partition before (I think it will take me a little time cause windows realy hate copy small folders ^^. but I think it's the best way for that.

I must found what broke my fat 12 partition cause I wouldn't broke it again. I suspect a final fantasy disk image is the cause of my probleme all beguin at this moment. I know somes sony software destruct hard drive boot sector.
