I would like to know How to make a *.img then boot from it using grub4dos on a flash drive

The os on the phisical drive is DOS 6.22 thare are 2 partitions

I think the ide controller is fobar but it is still booting from a flash

note that its a CNC mashene thats parts are expencive to replace but more than that is that it works like a normal pc with phoenix bios and everything

What size is the IDE drive and 2 partitions?

So you need to remove the IDE drive - connect to another computer (or use USB adapter) - run a clone program (e.g. RMPrepUSB - Drive->File).

Then use File->Drive to copy the contents to the flash drive.

But I guess it depends on the sizes??

I got That CNC up this morning ,seems it needed some manual hdd settings for it to pick up was needed,but the ide controller is temperamental at best,we are looking at a 40 GB hdd with a 30mb primary and 1.8GB extended (rest is unallocated)partition table,but i will only get my hands on the drive again when the CNC is broken again,for now it is in production so i cant play with it, i will post here again if that happens .....
