A new version of 32bit Menuet OS has been released...

I reccomend anybody with either a floppy or a virtual machine to try and boot this OS once.

Some guy made a version of Menuet that runs on a cd, I have only tried the Russian version of the cd...

I think all you need is a FAT12 CD...

You could also burn a bootable cd with a floppy image as a boot image.

Menuet OS is interesting, but I think it's not so usable because developing for it is a bit hard and the documentation is all sparse (that's just my opinion, tough).

Have you checked your BIOS is set to boot from CD?

It's nice to see such alternative OS's around. I recall something called "qnx" runs on a diskette and lets you to connect internet some years ago. it was really good comparing to its size.

That was the so-called QNX Demodisk. QNX is a commercial real-time OS based on a kernel called "Neutrino". The "real" release is delivered on a CD and takes up a "bit" more space than 1.44MB :). But I agree, it's a nice thing to have an OS and an internet browser on a single floppy.

QNX can still be built small. You just cant fit it on a 1.44 disk anymore. I think I caluclated it out to about 2.8MB that you need so even low level formatting your diskette to a larger size wont help. And as far as I know, there are no 2.88 floppy drives compatible with a modern PC.

Interesting bit about the 2.88MB floppy drives... Almost all (even fairly modern) motherboards I've seen had a BIOS option for a 2.88MB floppy drive, but the actual drives seem to be rare.

... the only 2.88 floppy drives are for the IBM PS/2. I have several including multitudes of 2.88/4MB floppies.
