I looked before I posted this, but I didn't find the answer. I suspect it's a duplicate question, sorry.
I'm using Virtual ][, and I want to "format a disk" so I can store my code on it.
How do I make new, blank, .dsk files?
If you click on "Media" - there opens a drop down menu - then on "Create Blank Diskette".
Or you copy a disk image in the Filer or Explorer - start in Virtual II a DOS3.3 Master and "INIT" the disk, or use FID (from DOS3.3 Master Disk) or format it with a program like System Utilities or Copy II Plus.
I feel a bit dense, but I do appreciate the patient answer.
There are no wrong questions here.
Well, this one might be on the edge of wrong but here goes.
I boot Virtual 2.
I created a new blank disk per instructions
I went to init the bad boy but I keep getting "I/O ERROR"
Not sure what to do about that.
WAIT! I figured it out. I wasn't booting to DOS 3.3 properly.
