Hello. I found out just now that the programming for accessing the disk using INT13h looks like assembly code. I don't understand the topic and I wonder if anyone knows of a way to help me understand something about addressing.
Given a VM with MSDOS 6 instantiated; Does the virtual BIOS & PATA adapter address with LBA and int 13h ? Isn't this locked into a standard if using the same (int 13h) LBA routines?
Do all INT13 motherboards really have their own unique versions of INT13h? So bytes from one machine are addressed differently by another?
Can a disk image map original byte and address structure to a unpartitioned media?
I had the idea that DOS diskettes are a reliable way to deal with incompatibility between computers. The industry and developers release software in archival (read only) form. To cross beyond dissimilar disk addressing and hardware designs.
