    I been having a problem with runing Windows 98 using the bochs emulator. I can see the Win98se when I open bochs but then it the boot up screen where it goes black I get an error msg and I have taken a screen shot.

    the reason for this error is that bochs can not read the hard disk image does not detect it in the bios to get this working do the following

    download
    bios bochs legacy

    replace the bios bochs latest
    with bios bochs legacy

    apparently there is a bug in the bios bochs latest

    that should fix your problem

    you should find bios bochs latest in your os.ini

    and the orginal file is located in

    private/var/stash/applications

    hope this helps

    milesneptune just wanted to say following your xp project with great intrest good work you may want to try the following

    minixp requires only 40mb to run the ipod touch could handle this
    as does tinyxp

    winflp requires only 64mb to run i think

    am gonna try getting windows me to run on ipod touch leave you to xp good work hope to see a working version of xp soon

    hope this helps

    peace out
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    go on the web and download the latest boch emulator for pc you will find bios legacy in the zip folder replace ssh it to your ipod touch at private/var/stash/applications/bochs so in that folder your will have bios bochs latest and bios bochs legacy

    change the os ini file for win98 to bios bochs legacy respring your ipod and you should be good to go

    be warned win98 does have a long boot time

    hope that helps
