help with bochs.

closed account (Dy7SLyTq)
so im using bochs for my development right now, but im stuck configuring it. i have a bootloader called boot.bin (which is written in assembly). then i made a virtual bootable floppy with bximage and then did dd if=boot.bin of=boot.img. i cant figure out how to get it to boot to the floppy to see if it will work. the tutorials havent worked for me
Hi,

What OS are you using bochs on, windows?
If so, follow this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR1PzQRayiQ

What virtual floppy drive software are you using?

Hi,

I never developed on ubuntu (ever) although I would recommend you develop it through Windows.
Sorry I could not help.

bro... i am not developing on windows... i dont understand why your trying to get me to do that. i put it in the unix section for a reason. i dont like developing on windows. i never will. it is a valid environment, but it just doesnt behave the way i like. i have my environment all set up. i just need to configure bochs.
FWIW VirtualBox has a linux client. I'm not familiar with Bochs, but according to http://bochs.sourceforge.net/doc/docbook/user/bochsrc.html set boot: floppy in bochsrc.
