Writing image to drive A:. Press ^C to abort.
Attempt to DMA across 64K boundary
can you help me please???:)
It looks that there's a problem during rawrite. Do you have DMA on for floppies (I'm not sure if it's possible at all, but check it and turn off if it exists)?
Another issue may be with RAWRITE. There are multiple versions of that program, and as I recall the one that worked for me was RAWRITE13 (I think). In any event, these other versions should be available from the same place you d/l your disk. You might try created the boot disk using a different version of RAWRITE and seeing if that solves your problems. It did for me. Good luck -- J.W.
