PowerMax Installation


Creating a boot image

Currently the boot images PMX.IMG and BARE.IMG are created by a batch file that uses DOS's copy command. No utility to do this any other way has been created yet. See the file MAKEIMGE.BAT for an example.

Booting from floppy

There's 2 batch files called MAKE144.BAT and MAKE12.BAT that create boot floppies from the default boot image (PMX.IMG). Make sure a fomatted floppy is in drive A: before starting the batch file.

Booting from DOS
PowerMax can be booted from clean DOS with the utility called BOOT.COM. The filename of the boot image to use is the only command line argument. If it is missing the default boot image name PMX.IMG is used.
