RE: Trouble Floppy Booting an MVME167

Thank you for all the great information.

I determined that the floppy disks were correct.
Everything up to diskread system call appeared correct.
The disk drive activity light would come on for about a second only.
This was not long enough to read the 48 requested blocks.

I checked the floppy disk parameters using IOT, and found them NOT to be correct.
After changing these parameters (e.g., sector size), I booted the Woody image.
It is interesting that the first stage kernel loading appeared OK with the incorrect parameters.

Have a great 4th.
