Formatting a Disk (help needed)

I do not have an actual disk drive to test this on, I use the emulator of the floppy emulator on my Adam but if you do can you test this:

  1. Boot up CP/M on floppy
  2. Type Format
  3. When prompted put in a blank disk and format it, verify when done
  4. Boot Smart Basic
  5. Depending on your setup type CATALOG,D1 (or D3 or D5) to view the catalog of the smart basic disk
  6. Now remove the Smart Basic disk and insert the CP/M formatted disk
  7. Type INIT HELLO,D1 (or D3 or D5, again varies based on setup)
  8. Now type 10 PRINT “HELLO WORLD”
  9. Save this with SAVE WORLD
  10. Reboot with the Smart Basic disk
  11. Put the disk that was formatted with CP/M in and type LOAD WORLD
  12. Did it work?
