Yeah, it wouldn't work directly in my 2.5" USB adaptor cause the pins were too high due to the thickness of the 40mb mainboard - harder to explain than it is ... so i had to use my FULL sized 3.5" IDE adpaotr with a second LARGE IDE to SMALL IDE adaptor to fit into the 40mb, its ugly, i might have a look around for other adaptors, i might get lucky.

It probably only appear as working because lack of permission prevents any data accesses.
Check winuaebootlog.txt after clicking add harddrive for more detailed information.
I think its here
opening device '\\?\usbstor#disk&ven_st9051a&prod_&rev_#51a222222222&0#{53f56307-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}'

device size is zero!

You had to do it differently, A590 has SCSI (or XT) drive, not IDE. Any active adapter (like SCSI<>IDE) most likely fix or "hide" the hardware compatibility problem.
Funny part of all this, i don't have a SCSI adapter so i actually can't recall how on earth i did that, but i have the image here, so i did it somehow .. irrelevant anyways.

Any windows based solutions? I tried to see if Winimage would take an Image but drive wasn't selectable. I guess i could just store it but there are a few files i want from it and a complete image is always preferable.

Thanks Toni
