Congratulations on the 0.81 release! It now works on more machines than before!
**Visopsys 0.81 (CD) DOES boot on a early AMD64 machine with both IDE and SATA drives when id didn't before**
This is new!
I am now able to boot to the desktop using the IDE DVD drive.
Visopsys still fails to boot the SATA DVD drive, even with the IDE drives disconnected. It says "command failed - timeout" on identifying SATA devices.
Several factors which could confuse Visopsys on this machine:
1. The motherboard SATA controller I was using might not be 100% to spec. Debian Linux outputs periodic kernel errors about it to tty0 which do not affect the ability to read from drives on it.
2. There is additionally a PCIe IDE/SATA controller present.
3. A USB multi-card reader is present.
**Visopsys 0.81 (CD) does not???? boot on a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5919**
On the Satellite, there are still plenty of errors (about the USB card reader, I think); however, instead of displaying nothing but a mouse cursor it displayed: "Please enter your login name:" with a text field, and "Reboot" and "Shut down" buttons.
This was a bit odd, since no login was required for the live CD on the other machine, and I have no idea what username and password it wants.
I hit the "Reboot" button, and the second time and third times up it said it couldn't find the boot CD.
It also booted directly to an error on the fourth boot after I had physically powered off.
**Visopsys 0.8 (CD) does NOT boot on random Gateway Pentium 4**
It gets an "invalid command" error at the ATAPI command stage trying to identify and read the boot CD.
Let me know if you'd like any further testing or specs on these machines...
