So I got DIOS-MIOS to work. A great accomplishment. I had an IDE to USB adapter that I could use to connect old internal HDD's. They always spinup and never go to sleep. But now the adapter broke. Now I tried hooking up my ultra-modern external 1TB HDD. CFG Loader could detect it. Read the filesystem. But the problem with this hard drive is that it starts in idle mode. Just serving the filesystem. Then once something wants to read it, it starts to spinup. CFG loader however expects and instant datastream. I've seen that it's on the CFG loader's to do list to have it spinup drives first. But I don't know how long that will take. Any suggestions? It only goes to sleep when no data is requested for a few minutes. So maybe loading an image or something first? EDIT: Sorry if this question has been asked 1M times before.
