Hi Bob,
The Q68 system files Q68_SMSQ.WIN or Q68_SMSQ.SYS have to be located on FAT32 
partition.
The FAT device is used to access a FAT16 partition. Used to interchange data 
from Q68 and other PC or MAC computers.
Any updated Q68_SMS.WIN file must be located in the first 16 entries in the 
FAT32 file system.
You can see the file entries by using the CARD_DIR$ function.
To see the FAT32 entries on Card 1 use:
PRINT CARD_DIR$(1)
The safest way to update SMSQ/E on a Q68 is to copy the Q68_SMSQ.WIN file to a 
separate SD Card and insert this into Q68 SD Card Slot 2.
Power on Q68, with working SD Card. The current SMSQ/E WIN file is defined at 
WIN8_ by default.
You have to initialise Sd Card 2 and mount the new updates WIN file that can be 
done by:
CARD_INIT 2WIN_DRIVE 7,2,"Q68_SMSQ.WIN"WCOPY WIN7_ , WIN8_
If you only want the Q68_SMSQ.SYS file to start the Q68. Then the updated file 
has to be placed on the SD Card with Windows/Linux/Mac.
Please refer to the SMSQ/E manual with regards fragmentation of the SD Card 
FAT32 file system.
RegardsDerek

Thanks Wolfgang for the update.
But there are some confusing aspects about the Q68 files.
Both count 350.000 bytes, one .SYS and one .WIN.
When Viewed they look the same. Should the .WIN not be a valid QLWA file  
containing the .sys?

I've copied the .sys to the existing Q68_SMSQ.WIN on my SD using QPC2,  
replacing the previous SMSQ. The existing BOOT was used to start the Q68.
The boot file now gave an error on FAT_DRIVE 'unknown procedure'.
Looking at the list of commands with HyperHelp showed no FAT_ keywords  
were found.

Bob
