I just created a 30GB VHD and copy the games to that new VHD to have some space for future activity.
Now I saw that on your original image, there is a 10 MB Stub partition. Is that important? or can I just go on with my single partition??
Thank you very much!
Everything is hard coded to have the E:\ drive be the location for games and there are some games that had .ini file entries that have hard coded paths. Also, D: is hard coded to be the CD drive. The only way for that to work is to create the stub partition (the 10MB one) and then take it back over with the DOS ASSIGN utility. So on boot you end up with an OS disk (C:), CD Drive/temp stub disk (D:), Games and utilities (E:) and the actual CD drive (F:).
See the autoexec.bat for the ASSIGN tool reference. If you can get your disks to be C: (OS), D: (CD drive), and E: (games) then you don't need my hacky D: drive hack.
One additional note. If you went back to exodos and changed the exodosconverter mister.py file to reference a difference cd folder, like F: (anywhere in this code below with the 'd' referenced), then re-ran a games export to your VHD, then you wouldn't need my hack either. Unfortunately that wouldn't include any of my pack fixes over the years either (the ones checked into github), but here is that code for reference for you and others:
