Hi there:

I believe I can help with this.

I’m on the road right now but hopefully will be able to get back later this afternoon.

Take care.

The controller you need is the CFFA2, which I believe is a compact flash reader. Your disk image needs to have the ProDOS operating system on it. I recommend the Davex shell with ProDOS Textalker added. I have a floppy image of such a disk if you need it.

Everything I read tells me to specify -hard1 <filename> on the command line, or to specify the hard disk image in apple2ee.ini, but neither boots from the hard disk image, and I'm not able to see my hard disk image when I load my Davex floppy either.
