> MenuetOS > Stuck at "Unmaksing all IRQs"
I'm attempting to run MenuetOS on a Dell Latitude XP 475D with a 75 MHZ processor, 40 mb Ext memory, and 37 mb XMS memory. Everything runs smoothly until I hit escape at "All set - press ESC to start." At this point, I see "Unmasking all IRQs" and the computer just hangs there. Any help would be appreciated. I'm rather new to anything but Windows.

I had the same problem when I booted from my HD into DOS, allowing all my TSR's to load. If you're trying to run menuet from your HD (as I did, no floppies :p) try booting _only_ DOS (Shift F5 / F8 -> MSDOS only).
That worked for me

Hello, I use Win98 and it has DOS that handles large hard drives.
WinME does also.
F7/F8 (DOS in a box) isn't the same as straight DOS.
I made a batch file that
IF EXIST AUTOEXEC.DOS GOTO DOS
;write your Win code here
ATTRIB -S -H -R +A MSDOS.SYS
so I could
REN MSDOS.SYS MSDOS.WIN
REN MSDOS.DOS MSDOS.SYS
ATTRIB +S +H +R MSDOS.SYS
REN AUTOEXEC.BAT AUTOEXEC.WIN
REN CONFIG.SYS CONFIG.WIN
REN CONFIG.DOS CONFIG.SYS
REN AUTOEXEC.DOS AUTOEXEC.BAT
ok once you have made a DOS system file set from your Win files
the SOS.BAT Swaps your Opperateing System boot files for you.
I hope that helps some one some how.

Menuet kernel wouldn't be even able to boot from Windows, because it reloads CR0 and CR3 which can't be accessed in V86 mode.
There's a problem somewhere in MenuetOS code (I think in SYS32.INC). Using TSSes for switching to/from interrupts is very slow (same speed as switching to another task). I wrote some debugging code that sends data to COM1 and IRQ0 isn't even started.
