I want to install Omniflop to write ST disks with a USB floppy but i'm meant to disable something regarding the drivers by pressing F8 for the boot options.

Problem is that when I do the F8, instead of getting the boot options i'm getting bootmgr is missing or something like that. If i restart the computer works fine and boots but that still doesnt solve the fact that i have no access to the startup menu.

Any help please ?

You can access the boot from `msconfig`, just type it in the RUN window

Dougal, do you mean the BIOS settings? these are usually accessed with the DEL key at start up or if it's an HP computer I think they use F2. Boot options menu is also available on F5 on some computers.

Screw it, I setup an old pentium 4 which has XP and a real disk drive. Works perfect :)
