Microsoft Windows 286 Image Issue

Post by aplmak »

Hello.. It's been a while. So I have used Kryoflux for quite a long time now and I love the device. So recently I came across some Altos Microsoft 286 Windows installation floppies (4). The odd thing is I can duplicate them on my Xenix server with a disk formatted in Altos format fine. I've tried to read them with Kryoflux and used MFM Sector Image but I get all "unknown" tracks and it doesn't copy any data. It's strange.. I can run the
dosdir /dev/fd0 command and get a list of all the files contained on the disk fine on my Altos Xenix server. So all the files are there. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Matthew

If the floppies are 5.25" and HD and still readable via normal dos you might have to add -v360 before -i4, if you used command line dtc to interpret them at correct RPM.
