Files match but the search still failed.

Apologies for the snapshot but it serves the purpose.
To me, the most relevant notes are "missing firmware" and "devices found: ''".
An old magnetic HDD should be detected by a driver without fancy firmware.
That leaves "devices found: ''" while files are in (hd0,msdos7). Does
the search algorithm work for an extended part? Ref.
Depending on replies, I might try the files in (hd1,1).
Thx, ... P.
