How do you generally test and work with MenuetOS, and perhaps other OS?

I have to use VMWare, because Menuet doesn't support USB mice. I hate touchpad.

Please post a detailed setup/cfg for VMware rev. etc. for those using it.

I used both my primary and secondary real machines, but only the second one could start the OS, and with poor graphics.
Can't remember the details now, but something with the VESA code wasn't working well on my computers...

My USB mouse is supported, but I have to press "ctrl + alt + del" until the whole taskbar before it works, and maintain that fullness-- Because the moment I close a program the mouse stops working again!

Hope this helps other people with a USB mouse!

I run 32 bit on VMware Player using a floppy image, copy it to a floppy and then back to another image at work. I also real boot the same floppy on my old laptop.

Means I always have two backups and floppy to boot on a real machine.

I use rawwrite to copy back and fourth to the floppy and vmware player 2.

Here's my vmx file for use with vmware player 2. Just change the floppy image location to your own and boot it.
It doesn't have a hard drive image defined as otherwise I'd have two images to carry arround.

I always leave write dircrty to floppy on when running in a virtual because the write to the floppy image is nice and fast.

menuetos.vmx:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/vmware
displayName = "MenuetOS IMG"
guestOS = "other"

memsize = "256"

# DEFAULT SETTINGS UNDER THIS LINE
config.version = "8"
virtualHW.version = "4"

MemAllowAutoScaleDown = "FALSE"
MemTrimRate = "-1"

uuid.action = "create"
checkpoint.vmState = ""


ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
ethernet0.connectionType = "bridged"
ethernet0.addressType = "generated"

usb.present = "TRUE"
sound.present = "TRUE"

floppy0.present = "TRUE"
ide0:0.present = "FALSE"
ide0:1.present = "FALSE"
ide1:1.present = "FALSE"

ide1:0.present = "TRUE"
ide1:0.fileName = "D:"
ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"
ide1:0.startConnected = "TRUE"

floppy0.fileType = "file"
floppy0.fileName = "C:\M32-085.IMG"

floppy0.clientDevice = "FALSE"
virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"
tools.upgrade.policy = "manual"

ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:94:f6:d1"
ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"
tools.remindInstall = "TRUE"

Thanks for sharing and AFAIK the player part of VMWare is free so this is easily tested on a persons machine wanting to give it a try!
