Hi, all,

I encountered a error message "Can't recognize 'Minix-HD.img: as a
device" when I type "=" to start Minix.
The image is created through bximage.exe, the size is 30M.
The ROOT and USR are from Andrew's book (2rd)
environment: HP nc6320
CPU intel T2300, RAM 1G, XP+Bochs 2.3
I attached my bxrc file and log file, Could some give me kind help?
Any help will be highly appreciated.

Best regards,
Albert

I have no floppy, here is the bxrc file I used:
--------------------------------------------------------------------

# how much memory the emulated machine will have
megs: 32

# filename of ROM images
romimage: file=../BIOS-bochs-latest, address=0xf0000
vgaromimage: file=../VGABIOS-lgpl-latest

# what disk images will be used
floppya: 1_44=ROOT, status=inserted
floppyb: 1_44=USR, status=inserted

# hard disk
ata0-master: type=disk, path=Minix-HD.img, mode=flat, cylinders=60,
heads=16, spt=63

# choose the boot disk.
boot: floppy

# where do we send log messages?
log: bochsout.txt

# disable the mouse, since DLX is text only
mouse: enabled=0
