Bochs and other emulators seem to require a full 1.44MB floppy image in order to work.
Are you sure? Bochs 2.4.5 seems to be OK with 512-byte floppy images.


Bochs 2.4.5 refused to boot without the padding and same happened with the Virtualbox.
I think this has something to do with floppy image recoqnition of those emulators.

Besides padding is not a big task to do.

My tests were just quick tests on those emulators. I prefer using real PC's
over the emulators.
