Long shot. DD still only writes blocks so it depends on the underlying disk=
driver for the actual drive format. These are not DOS or NTFS format so AFA=
IKthere are no drivers for them on Linux. I did find a few references for L=
inux RWtools although they did not support writing bootable OS disks.
Will take one of the older laptops apart and look for the disk connector ty=
pes.
