I will need to test that. You will need a IDE BIOS that the PC BIOS can use to boot from HDD. XT IDE is one. I will add support for it in the config file and the GUI and do some testing.

This sound very good, but please let xtide as optional, so when we need a "pure" emulation we may turn it off.
Also, I was unable in loadin basics, even with the file setting directelly in config.cfg and the binary basicacc11.bin
Even worse, I have try with original Ibm xt bios (3 different version), but it doesn't boot.

p.s. I had to told you before....... Many thanks for this new emulator!!!!!

Yes I agree.

Yes, BASIC loading is disabled in this release (I just forgot to enable it). I am re-enabling it back now. BASIC will work just fine.

It did for me few days ago when I was trying. However it looks like it is hanging for a while because the XT BIOS is trying to hammer the FDC ports. Eventually it gives up and goes on to boot succesfully. It takes about 40 seconds or so. I will try it again though to make sure all is ok.

You are welcome!

I will shortly put up a new release with all those fixes that people mentioned here (and some others that I have done).

I have the 0xC000007C error as well when I try to use UniPCemu's 32-bit version with the 64-bit SDL2.dll and vice-versa(64-bit UniPCemu with 32-bit SDL2.dll), so it might be that the wrong dll is supplied?

Yes, I think this means the required dependency DLL is not found. In my case I was not statically linking against VS2015 runtime and your case it cannot find the matching SDL2.dll for the correct platform.

Version 0.3 is out, this time with MacOSX support as well. I created a new thread in "Release Annoucement" and we'll keep this thread for technical discussion.
