With the help of Jeff (Jean Francois) i successfully upgraded Gotek emulator with HxC firmware and also booted the Excellon CNC-6 controller using Pen drive and also with extended SD card. Few more small things needs to be corrected and currently in touch with Jeff to complete it. on completion of this by 100% i will update with complete instructions, photographs and videos if necessary. keep in touch

After several attempts using various parameters the Gotek USB-Floppy Emulator is successfully installed in Excellon CNC-6 controller. This emulator was enabled to this setup only after updating to HxC firmware. Thanks a lot to Jeff for his excellent support. Without his support this would not have been possible. Thanks Jeff.
Will update with step by step procedure soon about this setup. in the mean time sharing the success video, see the link below
