Very nice.

Seven year old OS.

Have you tried it on real hardware?

Can it boot from HDD/SSD? I don't have any floppy drives now.

Hi revolution,

Sorry to tell you currently Piscisos doesn't support booting from other media except floppy. If you need to boot it from HDD/SSD you have to modify the boot sector. The boot sector needs to load the OS kernel into the memory. And currently PiscisOS only supports the In-Memory-FAT12 file system.

PiscisOS is just a very simple demo OS as a practice of implementing x86 protect mode. Very Happy
