bootable drive?


I am trying to create a single HDD from data from 3 others on WinUAE.
I am doing this by partitioning and formatting the larger drive, into WORK and SYSTEM, like the originals, then drive by drive - copying the data across.

I cant get the single drive to boot though!

This shows an original drive attached to a booting WB, with the `work` and `system` shown. This boots fine.

This shows what I end up with - disc icons instead of system icons.
Why is this ? as this drive does not boot properly - it just starts a shell, where all commands are unknown.

Another problem I have in Winuae, is when I`m copying the data across, sometimes - often - the HD activity that flashes red, stops flashing, and the system is crashed.
I have to restart WinUAE and then continue the copy where I left off.

Any ideas?
