Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

You can't script as soon as you require user input. In this case, that 'press f5'. And i'm not going to require something like autokey (not that it would work in wayland, which is my desktop, since its security doesn't allow control of user input iirc). Besides, i tried the manual step as i said and …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

I tried that approach with the images produced by parted/mformat above. It didn't work. Also to be clear i want a approach that works completely outside dosbox/DOS/Windows and user interaction. Fire and forget and never do that stuff again, preferably without touching sudo. I've 'done it' (the …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

Speaking of this i've tried to make a way to transfer windows 95 and 98 to a bigger or smaller disk (like certain universities are able to image a OS into a networked machine), but i've failed. https://gist.github.com/99215a27097594d4e3f50bdc8f8fe8ad I tried this, using the mtools package and parted …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

He probably meant fat32 'transparency' usually wanted for windows 95 booting. And the answer is 'functionally impossible without replacing windows 95/98/whatever, because dosbox doesn't emulate windows and thus the windows drivers take precedence and passthrough is impossible'. The reason wine is …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

I've got something almost working. I' saying 'almost' because i'd like to install (or rather to copy over) the OS into another bootable drive from linux and start it up. I tried ms-sys but it didn't really help, and i tried the native tools (without formatting) with a bootdisk and a fdisk /mbr and a …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

Ugh. The only easy non-root way to make a dos filesystem in linux appears to be mkdosfs, and it uses the C/255/63 addressing scheme (well, it uses blocks, but i can do the calculation easily by dividing and fdisk -lu=cylinders gives those values). I'm going to give up on C/240/63 and test things out …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

I'm willing to waste a bit to only vary cylinders and have less size available to have compatibility with other 'low level emulators' for the images that use real bios. For input in human readable form i'm using the gnu numfmt. Since this is for a package and not a 'portable' utility i decided to …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

And, fdisk gives you precisely the partition type to set. If toggling LBA flag in parted did not work, then you just use fdisk to create the MBR partition and set type. man sfdisk gives the impression that it was completely removed with: Since version 2.26 sfdisk supports MBR (DOS), GPT, SUN and …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

Ah, another question. Wouldn't it be better for compatibility of the bigdiskCHS_8G patch to use the limit of the later ECHS of 240 heads (leading to 1024/240/63 - 7560 MB)? That would make images compatible with other emulators and bios that 'care' about being hardware accurate no? Also why limit …
