Hi all,
I just acquired a pccard hdd from toshiba because my portégé 2000 can boot from a pcmcia hdd as mentionned here:

I tried installing dos on the pccard hdd using sys x: but then as I try booting from it it says no system disk...
Anyone ever had success with this?
Thanks in advance for the kind answer.
Maximilian

Hi

I don’t have tested it but try to make a boot floppy-disk.
Then try to copy these files on the HDD. Check if it possible to boot now.
The other possibility is to install another OS on the HDD and to test it.
