Simplified emulator in browser.

Post by code » Sat Jul 31, 2021 5:04 am

One of the big advantages of MenuetOS was its simplicity to use. No need to install on HD - just boot from a floppy disk. Of course this is already obsolete.
I think that now it is good to find a replacement for this technique. Using some heavy close source emulator is bad, since this stops us from porting MenuetOS to another platform. I think that creating a local web page with js, with which to emulate MenuetOS is a perfect solution.

Hi
Sorry to hijack this but:

I can't find new topic button.
I believe I can use a USB stick to run MenuetOS is this correct and how?
Will the 64bit version run on a 32bit CPU?

I have tried this in the past and I'm looking for an OS to write a GRBL controller into it including G-code parser (CNC) which will load from a USB onto any machine. I already have it running on Labview but have hit some snags not including the expense.

Great work I hope to get have some fun running this up.

SImply by writing the fat12 image to the beginning of usb stick (starting from sector 0) boots fine in 3 out of my four test machines. This of course, will delete all the data in the usb stick. You probably need to enter the bootup-bios, with the stick connected and then select the stick as a boot-device. 64 bit Menuet does not run on 32 bit machine.
