    How about if I give you a link to an image that you can copy to your PC and extract it right from there onto a floppy?
    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    Thanks, but I managed to do it by finding a minimal dos 6.22 image and dskimage.exe for dos, transferring them over to the 5150, and writing the image directly from the 5150.

    Finally! The only problem is that the 6.22 version of xcopy still does NOT have the /h flag. Now why did I think it did have it?

    I dunno... I would have thought it did as well. But you are right -- it doesn't.

    Grab a copy of XXCOPY16 and use that. It's a third party program and is not DOS dependant.

    There's also a FreeDOS XCOPY that I've been using which has the /H switch.

    XXCOPY16 does look comprehensive. Dizzying array of options. It does seem to have a switch set called /clone which seems to be a good option for exactly what I want to do.

    Freedos looks like I'd need to install it, so I think I'll try xxcopy16.

    Thanks!

    XXCOPY16 also has the /H switch in addition to the /clone switch!

    The XCOPY I have from Freedos does not need to be installed.

    Thanks for the link! I'll keep that in my PC box of tools for the future.

    I used XXCOPY16, and it did what I needed, and seems to have worked.

    Thanks again for all your help.
