Trick for the stupid Microsoft Windows:
On partitioned SD Card it is only mounting the first partition, because... just...
With USB HDD no problem. Only one bit difference in the driver, it can be solved by hacking the card reader driver, see in google "flip removable bit".

Without driver hacking:
I bought a SD to SATA converter and put it to external USB 2.5" HDD case. Now the SD Card is HDD, and the Windows sees all Enterprise partitions! :-)
(For the HDD case my favorite is the Kingston SNA-DC/U because of the very easily removable cover.)

Two partitions have been added to the "full of Enterprise programs VHD", partitions:

The easy file browser/loader also on drive F: as START file, just press F1 key.

G: secondary SymbOS
The SymCommander configured for F: and G: as default.

Cool, thanks for updating.

One problem I came across so far is that SymCommander does not start at all. Neither from the desktop, nor from the Start menu. I still need to upgrade my RAM, so I´m running with 128KB only, but I guess that´s not the reason. From EXDOS I did a copy symbos.sd symbos.ini and this was taken. Everything else (games, demos etc.) is there. Maybe I did something silly?

SymCommander needs a little more of memory, but you can search and run other apps from Start/Run if I remember...

Talk with Saint for more memory. 1MB is only 20 pounds+pp...

Demonstration video from SzörG

At 1:37 why is so small the unused memory? From ca. 1024kB only 13kB available.
