JDW posted a topic in Compact MacI have a fully recapped SE/30 with 128MB RAM, ROMinator II Mega (with stock software still on it), and I'm booting from a FloppyEMU in HD20 mode. Even though FloppyEMU is basically a floppy emulator that connects to Macs via the floppy port, "HD20 mode" allows me to create a disk image (in my case, just over 200MB) on the SD card of the FloppyEMU and boot from it, just as an Apple HD20 hard disk would boot (via the floppy port). Normally the SE/30 cannot boot from an HD20, but the ROMinator II fixes that problem and allows booting from the FloppyEMU in HD20 mode and even from a real HD20. Currently, I am using System 6.0.8 on my FloppyEMU. Everything works fine and as expected EXCEPT for MultiFinder. For some reason I don't understand, MultiFinder won't load when I boot System 6 from my FloppyEMU in HD20 mode. (You always know when MultiFinder loads because you can see a little icon in the upper right of the menubar. When MultiFinder doesn't load, as in my case, that icon is missing.) No matter what I do, I can't get MultiFinder to load when booting from the FloppyEMU in HD20 mode. Yet if I boot from a spinning platter HDD (external SCSI drive) into System 6.0.8, MultiFinder loads just fine. I've tried copying MultiFinder from my HDD to my FloppyEMU without success, and I've tried a fresh copy of MultiFinder from System 6.0.8 install disks too, which doesn't work either. (I am booting in 24-bit addressing mode.) Those of you who have both a ROMinator II and FloppyEMU in HD20 mode booting System 6, have you experienced this problem with MultiFinder?
