Issues installing Solaris 2.4 x86

Hello. So I recently got my hands on a copy of Solaris x86 2.4 and tried to install it on 86box. It booted up from the floppy, then from the IDE boot CD, got me 1024x768x256 Setup, started copying stuff and crashed and rebooted in the middle with no explanations. I don't know what the hell Solaris w...

How do I access the CD in emulated Solaris 1.1.2?

Hello.

So I recently got myself into Xerox stuff and now trying to install Xerox Globalview for X 1.05.

I got up a SunOS 4.1.4 (Solaris 1.1.2) install on QEMU-SPARC, but now I can't figure out how to access the CD with install files. There's no /cdrom or /dev/cdrom.

Please help!

4011 is VERY crashy. Never got it to work using the original installer, try to find the i386 repack.

Re: Longhorn 4039 stuck on activate windows screen.

Had a similar issue. Had to upgrade to that from a specific build, or else there will be either a registry corruption error or an LSASS crash. You may spend a lot of time on those as there are no pointers which build will work. Even if that was with 4032 and not 4039.

Re: Various Windows 1.0 Development Filenames, Dates, and Si

Hey @ComputerHunter, I looked through one of the "slack space" BIN files and found something interesting. There appear to be a few DOS files, a bunch of sources, a DR5-like directory structure and an interesting dir called MSWORD. Maybe this diskette was a bootable pre-DR5 release? Compiling stuff (...

Great, a brand new build of pre-1xx Chicago! Not a holy find like Usability Testing builds or builds with Old Setup instead of a new 58s-styled one, but good.

Re: [REQUEST] Apricot Xi DOS bootdisk with FDISK and SYS

So I managed to hex hack the boot disk to show the hidden SYS files, but copying them using the following commands:

Code: Select all

copy io.sys A:
copy msdos.sys A:
copy command.com A:
didn't work.

And is it normal for the Xi to have the HDD as A: and the first floppy as B:?

[REQUEST] Apricot Xi DOS bootdisk with FDISK and SYS

Hi. Recently I got into Windows 1.0 non-PC compatible releases and tried to install a release of Windows for the XEN, but which had been confirmed to work on the Xi. So, since I didn't find any QDAE ROMs, I found that MAME emulates that as well and got MAME up. And I ran into an issue: the DOS 2.11 ...

Re: Windows 8 Build 7989 Problem

I can't help you with your "DVD Drive not showing" problem but I can assist you with a workaround of copying files onto the HDD. 0. Install the build (of course) 1. Download an ISO editing utility like PowerISO. 2. Get the 7989 ISO opened in it. 3. Copy every single file you want to copy in a direct...

I tried the Siemens PC-D MS-DOS 2.11 BIOS 2.11 and Siemens PC-D MS-DOS 3.10 off here: http://oldcomputers.dyndns.org/public/p ... index.html

BTW, it's the exact link you posted back in 2017 when you were offering Windows 1.0 for PC-D.

So yeah. Yet another MAME issue. So since Tandy 2000 HD isn't emulated properly yet, I decided to get Windows for PC-D. Aaaaand the earlier rev 2.11 boots, but FDISK hangs; the later 2.11 doesn't even boot, and here's what happened with 3.10. I was able to boot into the Install utility(after getting...
