This is how I have created a bootable ProDOS hard drive image for use with both AppleWin and the Floppy EMU on my Apple //c.
- Create a blank hard drive image using CiderPress.
- Download a bootable ProDOS floppy disk image. I used the ProDOS System Disk 4.0.2 which has ProDOS, BASIC.SYSTEM and the System Utilities programs. They can be found at Asimov with this link: ProDOS 4.0.2 System Disk
- Start AppleWin.
- Click on the Configuration Icon (Joystick/Speaker) and choose the Disk tab.
- Check the enable hard disk controller box.
- Click on the Select HDD 1 button and choose the image you created in CiderPress.
- Click on OK.
- Click on the icon for floppy drive 1 and choose the bootable floppy image you downloaded. Click on the Open button.
- Click on the Apple icon to boot AppleWin.
- You should get a message *** UNABLE TO LOAD PRODOS ***.
- On the Apple II you would do a control-reset, but AppleWin uses control-break to get to the ] prompt.
- At the prompt enter PR#6 to boot your ProDOS image.
- Once it was booted I chose System Utilities.
- When the System Utilities program is started up I chose Copy Files.
- Choose Slot and Drive for the Source.
- Enter 6 and 1 for floppy drive 1.
- Choose Slot and Drive for Destination.
- Enter 7 and 1 for your hard drive image.
- Choose Some files.
- Use the arrow keys to highlight and space to select PRODOS and BASIC.SYSTEM and press Return to copy the files that will make it bootable.
- Press Return when Copying complete.
At this point the hard drive image should be bootable and you can reboot by clicking on the Apple icon. I would suggest creating a subdirectory on your image and copying the system utilities programs into it. Then you would have them available.
