Can't boot usb 2.0 install from floppy
i am on a Dell demsion 2100, and i have a spare 40 gig Western Digital hd and 5 1/4 usb 2.0 external chase. i got the cf install ran on it just fine. my issue is the boot floppy. when i booted using the standard config on the floppy the boot process just hung up. next i comented the aspi line out and uncommented the di1000dd.sys hangs on my system, but this works... line. after the boot i had to type f for fail and gave instructions to add one of 2 blank files and did that still no luck. also after scanning for usb devices i showed a line like this
Matthias, you might just try the WAKEPUP boot floppy (see this link). I've put a newer USB mass-storage driver (USBASPI.SYS v2.20) on the disk. It worked with a USB flash drive that hung when I used BOOT2PUP.
