Shapeshifter works fine with almost any hardfiles I found.
That's the trouble. A-Max IV hardware is so rare that it's difficult for those who have no experience of it to make any recommendations.

Yes, we have found that it's possible to do that by adding a 16- or 32-byte header to the disk image, which can then be written to floppy disk using the Emplant disk imager utility. Whether the header is 16 or 32 bytes depends on the version of the Emplant utility used.

I was about to suggest this as a better method for you to get started because of the lack of experience here with the A-Max IV version of the hardware.

Well done! A write up would be very much appreciated by all contributors to the A-Max thread you mentioned earlier.
