Help with bochs
« 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
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

Bochs is just the emulator, nothing else. You'll need a separate file.
One must ask oneself: "do I will trolling to become a universal law?" And then when one realizes "yes, I do will it to be such," one feels completely justified.

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.
