I already had to grab the 'new' (2004) version of OnTrack from https://www.philscomputerlab.com/ontrack-disk-manager.html , only to find I couldn't write it to a floppy from my modern machine that has no floppy drive.
So that went onto the old 8GB SD card with Win95, so I could run the floppy creator through the old Pentium there, onto unused spots on the Gotek USB Floppy combo it has... so I could swap back to the 128GB card I'm trying to get working (no proper int13h support so ~8.5GB max otherwise).
Good news is I now have the overlay for it 'working' with the 128GB card and bootable into a single FAT32 partition with the most basic command.com and not much else.
Bad news is, this overlay means I can't directly write to the card from other machines.
Which means I can't do my usual 'copy the Windows setup folder over'.
Hence the jankery with CDs. D:
If I get this working again with the new card, though, I mean, it *does* have a 10Mbit half-duplex NE2000-clone NIC in it that I know works, for copying shit to it while running reeeally slowwwwly. But I might have to temporarily yank the sound card and shove in a PCI 100Mbit or GigE NIC if I have one in the basement.
Found a local-ish seller on eBay with a Gigabyte GA-7ZX (rev 1) *and* 1GHz Athlon combo for like $50.
I might have RAM for it, probably need to get a cooler, but hey.
