On my multiboot usb drive, I'm using the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test Image.
I have edited the image in that way, that ATA images are default selected and boot-timeout is zero seconds.
As far as I see, it's a DOS-based floppy image, and the settings are located in the config.sys file.
The Question I have now is, if I have to use it on a SCSI Drive, I would have to edit the file again.
Also, I could make a copy of the image, and modify it for SCSI, but that would be waste of space.
I also do not want to get the image-menu displayed, therefore I edited the config.sys but now this setback.
Long story short:
Is there a way of modifying a specific file INSIDE a Image which is mapped?
I tried the cat command, but this results in a failure since theres no specific file defined.
That's how I created the Image:
- Download DFT from http://www.hitachigs.../downloads/#DFT
- Download VFD from http://vfd.sourceforge.net/, extract files, create a 1.4MB Virtual Floppy Drive called "dft.img".
- Install DFT to the Virtual Drive.
- Edit config.sys (which is hidden in the root of the Floppy image)
- In Section "common" change Key "DEVICE" from "A:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS" to "A:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS /M:1"
- In Section "MENU" change Key "MENUDEFAULT" from "SCSI_MENU, 20" to "ATA, 0"
Add to menu.lst:
title Hitachi Drive Fitness Test find --set-root /images/dft.img map --mem /images/dft.img (fd0) map --hook chainloader (fd0)+1 rootnoverify (fd0) map --floppies=1
BTW: I'm creating images and saving changes into a XP PRO SP3 VM.
