Title: Help with bochs
Post by: xXIanXx on February 21, 2007, 11:30:51 AM
I got bochs working, but now I'm trying to make a disk image. How do I add files to it? I'm on a mac.

I made the testrun.img file now what would I need to do to add files?

I forget -- can a Mac mount IMG files with Disk Mounter, like a DMG? If so, it's that easy. If not, I have no clue. :P

Bochs is just the emulator, nothing else. You'll need a separate file.

Ok what do you use?
I have nasm so I compiled a nasm binary file it's 512bytes. What would I use to put it into an img file? Command line is fine.

Yes macs can open dmg's.

I found bochs was a pain in the a$$ to run on a mac. Try Q (http://www.kju-app.org/kju/), its free aswell and works OK.

Q does not work for me it always says not a bootable disk.
So boch works fine for me.
