Default Re: Gemini 80-Bus System

I am a little puzzled how the bios was created though. When using GENSYS I could not get it to build a bios with a single 5Mb partition.

e.g.

I would have loved just to use something like the following in the GENSYS .cfg to create an A: drive using the whole disk, however this doesn't work, it just raises an error when tryin to generate the bios.

Code:
;
; --------Winchester Based System-----------
;

	.biosmfb ; Use biosw.sys with winchester drivers

	*	; Memory size in K or *

	5	; Number of pages of workspace

	5	; Devices


W,*,512		; Drive A  (Fixed format 512 directory entries)
0,QDDS		; Drive B

W,RO201			; Rodime 5M
0,5,96,80,2,3,15,0	; Teac FD55GF-V
There has to be a number specified e.g.

Code:
W,5000,512	; Drive A  (Fixed format 512 directory entries)
0,QDDS		; Drive B
However, that gives a different error when using GENSYS. So far the only way to get anything to work is to use the following, which gives me 2 Winchester partitions, A: and B:.

Code:
W,5000,512	; Drive A  (Fixed format 512 directory entries)
W,*,512		; Drive B  (Fixed format 512 directory entries)
0,QDDS		; Drive C
