Menuet 64 0.53b boots nicely off an USB stick with FAT12 floppy partition, to which the floppy image was written to.

in QEMU AMD64 mode I did not get the NE2000 or 3COM 595 NIC to run (MAC address is falsely 000000 in diagnose window ethstat), although the 3COM worked nicely in a real menuet session. In QEMU (Windows build) I also did not get an emulated soundblaster to make any noise.

Has someone managed to get a NIC or soundcard to run inside QEMU emulator Question

Any experience with gdb debugging of menuet in emulator session Question

What software did you use to put menuet image on USB stick.
Thanks

floppyimage v.1.52 did the job for me.

I had to enable "USB legacy support" in BIOS. "direct write" to floppy in menuet probably does not work then, but its off by default, anyway.

actually, not at all. It came out of the box that way. Laughing

I guess, with linux or KNOPPIX it should be feasible. cfdisk allows you to set up any partition type incl. FAT12. then use mk_dosfs or similar to format it.

tell us your results, please ...

else you can use those 15 € IDE-flash disks with 40pin PATA connector which look like an hd to the compy and are blazingly fast.

Didn't you know that USB-sticks worked long ago. I even made a tutorial of how to use HEXPLORER to write to the USB-stick.

Sad Really sad to know that some people didn't realize it until now.

well you werent the first madis and neither was i. Too bad this information hasnt made itself into the main installation readme. I mean it didnt take much to make it work for as long as your bios supports booting from usb device using floppy emulation. now only if we can make it work using harddrive/cd-rom bios emulation.
