RE: [N8VEM-S100:4340] Another route to write a CPM3 image to a CF card for the S100 IDE board

That's good to hear Gary. The changes going fromV4.57 to 5.02 are listed as follows:-

;	V4.57	6/3/11		Set up an equate for IDE drive reset pulse, Fixed Z command (Last version using MM58167 RTC chip)
;	V4.6	11/27/11	Switched to Dallas Semiconductor/IBM-PC CMOS-RTC chip & MSDOS Support board for time & dates
;	V4.7	3/26/12	Cleaned up IOBYTE options. Added 68000 CPU, I/O to serial port. 
;	V4.8	10/27/12	Corrected SERIAL_STAT: error. Further cleaned up info on IOBYTE
;	V4.9	11/3/12	Added ability (XH, XL) Command to switch to low/high pages in 28C64 EEPROMS (for V2 Z80 Board)
;	V5.0	12/18/13	Add "C" menu option to download a ZModem file from a PC/Serial/USB port directly to RAM
;	V5.01	12/30/13	Add PC-Printer routines for new parallel Port Board with ST8C34 chip (ST8C4 = TRUE)
;	V5.02	1/31/14	Allow output to port EEH 01h activate TMA0* (8086,80286,80386 Boards) and 02h TMA1* (68000 Board)

Do you get the initial "#"  character on the screen.
Do you get the signon message.
Need symptoms to answer "does not work properly"

John -

At least  for me, your images boot just fine without a functional ZFDC board in the system.  It boots with the ZFDC board and no floppy drives, or no ZFDC board.

I'm using a SMB, Serial I/O, Propeller Console I/O, Parallel board,  Z80 CPU and 4mb SRAM.

I am using the earlier V4.57 of your monitor (for some reason I can't get the V5.02 to work properly, open to ideas!).

If the ZFDC board is not present I put out a warning "Failed to initialize the ZFDC Board" but then the loader continues on.  If I pull the ZFDC board out on my main system, also no hang!    Wish I could be of more help -- I'm  so bogged down on other boards right now I can't get my head above water.   I have one more week to do a lot then on a 3 week vacation (Grease, Turkey  -- forget internet!).  Want to try and get a few things completed before I go.

> Yes but before you put the image on the CF card you can add/delete files with the cpmtools because they know the underlying CPM file system of the image.  That is the beauty of this implementation.  I would not put the floppies in the base images until you fix it so the system does not hang if the board is not detected.
