Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

when I set QEMU to use the pcnet nic, I got debug messages about interrupt handling. Here's a screen shot (sorry for the poor picture): Hi Ron. Argh. I saw a similar kind of thing with unhandled interrupts on my dev PC. That was when I (unknowingly) had my disk controller set to legacy IDE mode for...

Re: Won't finish booting

Also, can you tell me anything about the hardware? Make and model? I might be able to look up the motherboard specs. Is it a laptop?

Re: Won't finish booting

Oh, and I don't have a 'legacy' setting available for the SATA controller, only IDE and RAID. Ah right, all the BIOS vendors have their own ways of labeling things. 'IDE' is the same as the legacy mode I was trying to describe. As I said, it might be interesting to see whether temporarily switching...

Re: Won't finish booting

I've attached a pic of what I could find in the BIOS. All I see is AHCI, but no mention of 'legacy.' This was on the SATA configuration page. Is there somewhere else I should look? No, that's good, thanks. That second box that says 'AHCI' is probably the one, and that's the non-legacy setting you'v...

Re: Won't finish booting

Hi, I am trying to boot from a flash drive, version 0.9. It gets hung up at the screen attached. Looks like it's looking for a PS/2 driver or something. I have a wireless keyboard/mouse attached to my system. I want to move my Windows 10 OS to a larger drive (who knew 100 GB's was too small?!?!? :s...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Wonder if you've given much thought to UEFI? Lots :-) I've developed several UEFI loaders at work, and the Visopsys one is nearly finished ... but ... 32-bit UEFI firmware is vanishingly rare nowadays - even a few years ago - I've only ever used one, and even Windows theoretically (not really) didn...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Thanks Ron, Ok, yeah that makes more sense now :-) That list of disks in the installer is 'logical' disks, which for partition-able disks, means partitions. Maybe I should make that a bit more user-friendly and helpful for cases like this. I'll make another note to myself about that one. Hi Ron, I ...

Re: Now for something different

Thanks for listening (watching), Ron. Nowadays I don't have time (or else financial justification) for all of my old hobbies, but music and Visopsys are the 2 I couldn't give up! Luckily my wife is a professional musician - classical pianist - so she's understanding when I want to go off and do band...
