Another route to write a CPM3 image to a CF card for the S100 IDE board
At least a temporary solution:
I placed an image of the compact flash that John kindly provided on my
Inside the .zip is a single file CPM3_0.vhd
This can be written to a 4gb Compact Flash using winimage from
It is originally from a Kingston 4gb card, but I was also able to write
it to two other 4gb cards successfully.
The 4gb Kingston cards that worked properly here (and for John) have a
white flower on the front, see ebay 291133013316 (newegg) or

usb--> compact flash is F:
under Disk, choose "use disk F:"
then Disk, "Restore Virtual Hard Drive image on physical drive"
From John's notes to me:
"I have CPM3 (banked 128K) on each of the other two CF cards, in user
group 0. In user group 1 are CPM86 files in case you need them later.
Note there are a number of SYS files in user group 0 for CPM3 & CPM86.
They will not be visible with DIR or DD. I assume my know how to handle
SYS files. "
I hope this provides a way for a few of you to get up and running easily.
It's wonderful to see that A> prompt!
