I'm looking for the System Disk for the "NEC PC-8801 MC".
It seems to be a 2HD floppy image: http://img177.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/user ... ok7204.jpg
Is this image in the last TOSEC?

I only have a single game for the NEC PC-8801 MC (I mean the real machine) and it doesn't boot: "Klax". Do I need to use a System Disk always to boot software on the NEC PC-8801 MC? :(

Yes, the image should be in the TOSEC. If it isn't, write a post here and i'll search for it in my collection (i think i have it).

Regarding real machine boot, i don't know but i suppose that a system disk is always needed. Danjuro and the others know more than me in that compartment... ;)

In the TOSEC I found some PC-8801 MC bios files (in .bin format):
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(CD)
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(Jisho)
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(N80-BASIC)
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(N88 E0)
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(N88 E2)
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(N88 E3)
NEC PC-8801MC BIOS (1989)(NEC)(N88-BASIC)

This is useless for me because I'm looking for the MC "System Disk" ( http://img177.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/user ... ok7204.jpg ) but in the TOSEC there are only System Disks for FE, FH, FR, MR, TR models. The MC one (and other models too) is missing. :(
