Problem: How to boot from a TI floppy and mount a usb to supply the files. All of the bootable products TI v8 creates, run well for me. But on occassion I have to access computers that don't boot with the USB, but do have a USB port. Besides using TI, I have a boot floppy that installs the drives to mount the a USB device. The problem with the TI Floppy boot is that it requires 3 to 7 disks to hold the timage.bin. 3 for safe and 7 for full. The safe version does not have the networkdrivers, so I can export the image or import a restore image. That is too many floppies to play around with, and if one of them goes bad, the whole process is shot and you have to redo it from scratch. It is also very slow, compared to the USB boot. Some of the pcs I am dealing with, also do not have a CD device. In the DOS config.sys, I just load the usb device with DEVICEhigh = USBASPI.SYS DEVICEhigh = DI1000DD.SYS /DU these 2 files use about 42kb on the floppy disk. /DU mounts a usb at U: The bootwiz.cfg did not recognize the 2 lines above (not linux syntax) which I put right under the [bootmnger] section but when I tried different wordings, I was able to get the .cfg to look like it was loading the USB (I think because it's light went on and stayed on.) RUN USBASPI.SYS may have been the line that worked but I would still have to know where the drive was located, so I can direct the timage.bin load TIs boot config varies depending on the boot type, but the floppy and usb boot have commands in it like. RUN ramdisk.exe /d timage.bin (odd, as the real file name is timage1.bin) INITRD y:\ramdisk.dat /S KERNEL y:\kernel.dat quiet so I would need to have one line that would read: RUN ramdisk.exe /d U:\Acronis\TI\timage.bin for which I would have had to load the USB driver first. I am also confused, for in studying linux systems for the last 2 says, I thought their drv letters were like sd1 (for usb), so why is TI using y:\ as a drv designation? If I do a DOS boot, then try to run TI from the USB, it says can't be run from DOS. ========= In the last 2 days, I have tried over 100 combinations, which all fail with "can't find or load image - reboot" and being there is no option to test the enviornment I can't figure out what's going on. Ideally a config like: [BootMgr] RUN USBASPI.SYS RUN DI1000DD.SYS /DU [TrueImage] ECHO Acronis True Image Floppy Cfg RUN splash.run RUN mouse.com RUN ramdisk.exe U:\Acronis\TI\timage.bin RESTART or some variation would be nice. The question is what is the correct sequence and syntax of the commands needed to mount a usb to supply the needed files, once the floppy has established a boot. ============= other: It would have been nice if Acronis had made the program runnable from DOS (Disk Managment parter & oss select.exes do) and for the floppy boot allowed devices to load that contain larger data files, like the cardbus, usb stick, usb cd or hd, or network service. There are plenty of older computers out there that have a non-bootable usb or bus-card.
