I have created an os that is put onto a floppy. I want to put the same os onto a hd and boot it like windows without a floppy and have a thing in boot.ini so i can choose the os (windows,or mine)

well, putting it into boot.ini is one thing, make it boot is the second! is it in RM with BIOS-Ints? if you start, you can save the bootdrive in dl after booting. thats important, because from then all your routines have to be based on this information. but if it runs, you can make it boot from whereever you want!

On Windows?

Code:
I have the following(one windows per hd):
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Quantum" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Druida" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn    


If I have two partitions, I _guess_ the second should be:
Code:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Druida" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

what else would you have to have to make it boot?, just changing the boot.ini file isnt totally going to make it work..what code would you have to add? thanks

Check out GRUB. This is what I use to play around with OS stuff..

I think it's simple you just add stuff like this to the menu.lst file

title MyFASMOS
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel.bin

Ofcourse adjust the partitions and stuff to your liking. It's quite a bit harder to do under LILO.

one feature that's a life saver with GRUB is the build in command line (press "c") - it has "saved" me (from needing to reboot to a liveCD) many times, esp while setting up this box for the first time (the disk name keppt changing (from hda, sda, hde) ) - don't forget teh tab-completion also Smile
