Hi Sylvester,

Yes, that's right, HELP is the other way to enter the ide-menu.

I want to help and create new files, but I can't.
It's been too long ago and I have to dig too deep to get somewhere.
Sorry.

I noticed the menu.bin is 16k and that is not supported by the 1Mb+IDE.....
Tried to parse it in 2x 8k, but that did not work either.
So to have the menu's running for -RE you need to run SETUP to install them on the CF-card.

Anything you want to add, just add it to the cartridge-menu.
Just use SHIFT at power-up to enter the cartridge and load it.

Grtz,
Sijmen.

Hi Sijmen,
I am sorry, I didn't notice that you wrote something at the 2nd page..
That's why the delay.

What about these questions ?

1. Also, when I try to make partitions, I can only make four of 65535 sectors (16MB) and actually the 4rth partition is a little bit lower sized (around 55.000) I think, whatever is the size of the CF 250MB or 1GB. Why ?

2. Still I can't make the CF to contain both Atari and FAT32 partitions.

Thank you

1, card is full, meaning, all allocate-able area for MyIDE_partitions is used.
If less room is available then requested, the remaining room is assigned.

1+2, Read the manual, chapter "USING THE MYIDE-MENU" in the manual.

In case you missed it, manual is here:
viewtopic.php?p=7010#p7010

Success, Sijmen.
