Hum,
Is it XP on the PC?
You can just plug in your HD and remember not to write anything to it:
Then in winuae go to options (press F12) and find a reference to hard drives, there’s a checkmark that should be ticked `add pc hard drives`...
Er, and that’s it....

Just decant your Amiga HD over to a folder in Winuae .
...then Unplug HD...

And reverse the procedure with the 2 gb HD.
(at least i think you can)

(it it because you dont have the WB disks?)

A clean install using the workbench disks sounds better to me.

BTW, i  just boot winuae from a folder rather than a virtual Hard drive.

The switch is -disableharddrivesafetycheck. To find it out yourself next time, you can load WinUAE.exe into a text editor (Write preferred, Notepad needs too long to load) and search for -dis.

Hmm. I just plugged the thing into the IDE cable and checked use UAEscsi in Winuae - It worked fine for me, no issues with Winders at all (XP, that is).
My only beef is that it is * s l o w * compared to using a hard disk file or plain winodws folder.
