Trying to add an NTFS4DOS disk - the floppy itself works OK. I made an image out of it and added to the UBCD iso and burnt the CD but the NTFS4DOS did not work. The image loads but it's broken.

Ques.
1. If properly customized will NTFS4DOS work with UBDC - ie. does it work or are there issues?

If the answer to 1. is Yes, it can work OK then:

2. Given that it can work work w/UBCD, then I must of done something wrong. I followed the established pattern of the other boot disks and added it in bootdsk.scn with the code:
Code:
if ($lastKey == key[f9]); then memdisk /images/ntfs4dos.igz


But what's the igz extension mean? The others had it so I used that.
what's memdisk? AFAIK my NTFS4DOS Floppy image is just a generic floppy image....appreciate any help. Thanks,

LeeG.

How is it "broken"? Did the floppy image boot at all, or did it crash
1/2 way while loading some drivers?

Another thing to check is the size of your floppy image. It should be
exactly 1,474,560 bytes.

The IGZ extension is simply the gzipped floppy image. It can only be
used with memdisk.

you said "The IGZ extension is simply the gzipped floppy image. It can only be used with memdisk."

I did not gzip the floppy image - i just gave it the IGZ extension.

I think I will start another thread - if u don't mind...

Nah. memdisk autodetects whether the image is gzipped compressed or not.
It does not care about the extension. The extension is more for humans
to differentiate which images have been compressed, and which not.
