Hi

I think your problem might be due to trying to write the floppy from within a dos box inside windows. try creating a dos boot disk so you can first boot into pure dos then try making the menuetos disk from pure dos mode. you probadly trashed the other disks that give you bad sector errors and they may not be fixable.

From within windows, do a full format of the floppy ("format a:") and look if it reports bad sectors.

i use WinImage to write floppy. It is checking your FD when you write data, so if there is a bad sector - it'll give you an error message with number of bad sectors.
