That setting allowed the background to be displayed. The counter window continued to whiz along. Anything into the keyboard didn't appear to affect the system.

The background image is set ramdomly, sometimes is black, that´s ok.
counter window ? i suppose that do you mean a window that shows date and time
I have downloaded bochs and will try to make the OS run on it.

Not necessary, but can you check (with your OS) if bios service ax=0e820h int 15h returns memory blocks in order from low to high, my OS expects this to be ordered.

I already solved the problem with memory detection, but still have problems with keyboard and mouse, in my last test under bochs the keyboard works but the mouse don't generate irqs, now i´m searching for a better documentation and will also try to understand the drivers in other oses like Menuetos or Solos.

For mouse you need to:
--------------------------------------
1)Enable 8042 Aux device (aka the mouse)
2)Read 8042 old command byte OR with 3 to enable IRQs for mouse and keyboard then write it back.
3)Eventually Reset the mouse (Mouse command: FF)
4)Enable mouse data reporting (Mouse command: F4)

Tips:
-------
1)Do not forget to read ACK = FA from the mouse after each command.
2)Every write to the mouse must be preceded by "next command is for mouse" command = D4

Yes this was the problem, on my computers this steps are unnecessary.
Now i have download version 0.181 wich also works on bochs 2.2 ,y have tested with 32-3MB of ram and 100-10mips, this version also has a keymap for english keyboards.

Probably your BIOS already did that when you got controll Wink

The ideea is to never assume anything and always test on as many PCs as possible (new and old)

Octavio, I noticed that you've changed websites, but where did OctaDOS go?
Oh well, it's still available at Programmer's Heaven (0.15, if anyone here hasn't tried it yet). I like it, it's quite unique! Smile

Forgive my ignorance, Octavio, but WHERE did you "download" version .184??
The link provided, kindly, by RugXuLo above, is active, but represents version 0.15, according to the Readme.txt file. Does version 0.184 correspond to that version 0.15, or, alternatively, perhaps the correct version, 0.184 is located at a different URL??
confused, as usual....

He's referring to his operating system, OctaOS 0.184, not Octasm for DOS (0.15), which I mentioned above. OctaOS runs without needing DOS, and it includes the latest Octasm. I like DOS, though, so that's why I mentioned Octasm for DOS 0.15 here. Smile

P.S. Click the "www" button on Octavio's post to go to his web page.

I tryed on the computer where im currently babysitting (i broke the floppy drive on my home comp Confused) and it seems to works great.

here are my specs:

brand: HP pavilon t350
cpu: intel pentium 4 2.8Ghz
ram: 512MB DDR
display: radeon 9200 LE Family, AGP

ill try it on my compaq presario when i get home. This is a very Nifty little operating system and after huntin round the house for PS/2 mouse (i usually have a USB one) to which it took an alarming amount of time for me to realise that your OS wouldn't have the drivers Embarassed, although i had a good game of "domi"-something aka "Minesweeper", to which i must say is biased as 8/10 i hit a mine on my first click Evil or Very Mad.
