you should use cdrw before burning it to cdr. :wink:

put thepartition magic 8 floppy image in the \image folder then goto boot\menus open up a *.scn file and add a line

Code: Select all

[F1] Partition Magic 8
then add a line

Code: Select all

if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then bcdw boot /images/pmagic.ima
or whatever you name your image file to in the last part

if ($lastKey == key[8]); then memdisk \custom\PM8.IMA
works for me.
