Thoroughbred OS Emulation

Post by ajfa »

Hi, Has anyone been successful at emulating Thoroughbred OS?

I get stuck at the "Press Return" instruction at the boot menu.

I will appreciate any guidance.

What emulator are you using? I have not yet tried it but I suggest you use 86Box or PCem since it was designed for IBM XT.

Also, the disk was non-DOS formatted.

Hi ComputerHunter, I've tried MAME, PCem, 86Box and PCE, with no success. In all instances I get stuck at the initial notification prompt waiting for an Enter key.

what speed have you used in the IBM XT on 86box? 4.77Mhz or 8Mhz?

I tried in PCE -IBM 5160 emulation configuration- and it worked. (Thanks to SomeGuy for the hint).
