    Well, assuming your computer can boot from USB I'll repeat my suggestion to make a bootable USB DOS stick, preferably with 7.11 on it. Copy the IMD programs and image(s) to it, boot the DOS stick and Bob's your uncle.

    Chuck's RAMdisk is also a good idea but a self-extracting image would of course be the best, although not a general solution for running pure DOS...

    Ok.. I appreciate the suggestions and will give em a try.

    This is all probably for naught anyway.. I'm sure something is busted with my character generator on the hyperion. I just want to make sure there isn't something special about the Hyperion version of DOS that makes text work.

    Given the dodgy compatibility of the Hyperion, I wouldn't put it past them. You should keep trying. I have a Corona that shares video RAM with system RAM and without the OEM version of DOS it comes with, I'm fairly certain programs load into the video RAM area (bad).
    Offering a bounty for:
    - The software "Overhead Express" (doesn't have to be original, can be a copy)
    - A working Sanyo MBC-775, Olivetti M24, or Logabax 1600
    - Documentation and original disks for: Panasonic Sr. Partner, Zenith Z-160 series
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)

    Yeah. Personally I'm doubtful I'll be that lucky. I did find this video of a slightly different, European Hyperion, but you can see clearly there's a flashing cursor there on power up before it does anything with the disk. Mine doesn't do that.. it just floods the screen with orange. Maybe there is a difference in how different variants behave.
