USB translated drive and AUTO folder

Postby Cyprian » Sun Feb 14, 2016 3:11 pm

I've just observed that PRG files from AUTO folder are not loaded during boot process.

If you don't press any key (don't set the boot drive) when CE_DD is loaded, the boot drive is set automatically to your config drive, so it's easier to find the config tools on the first run. So if you got a translated drive, e.g. under letter G:, then you should press 'G' after CE_DD is loaded to boot from that drive. Or even if you do that, it doesn't help?

Doing that for the translated drive every time is probably annoying, so should I add an option in the config for setting that boot drive?

I'll check 'C' key during boot, but would be cool to have such an option
