Downloaded disk image but failed to boot on VirtualBox

Post by 1zyzy1 » Thu Apr 22, 2021 2:19 pm

Hi, I think this is a great project, something I was dreaming of doing.

Just now I tried to download the disk image (M6413640.IMG) and bind it to VirtualBox 6.0 (there is no more older version of VirtualBox available), and this is what I get when trying to boot MenuetOS :

I love writing Assembly using FASM recently, and I am fond of people like you, the creator of MenuetOS.

Do you know how can I boot and use MenuetOS? I don't have a physical USB floppy drive.

When you create the virtual machine in VirtualBox settings, you need to select a 64 bit OS. This will enable the needed 64bit commands for Menuet64. For example in the settings / general: Type: Microsoft Windows, Version: Windows 2003 (64bit).

For some reasons, my copy of VirtualBox does not show 64-bit guest OSes. So I downloaded MenuetOS 32 (M32-086B.IMG) and it works well with my mouse and keyboard. "Splendid job!" to the team of MenuetOS !

Thank you. For 64bit code, you might need to enable virtualization also in BIOS. VT-x for Intel and AMD-V for amd cpus.
