Aha... now I get it I think

Hi Pere, Tormod, Interesting stuff. From reading the Os9 Level 1 system programmers manual, and googling, I'd believed the process was quite simple. Boot track loading and execution which chains the OS9boot file (while still running boot track code). Then system init and go. Easy to assume as the Io...

Re: Nitr-OS9 vs OS-9

Or, I guess there's another way. Get the Pere's DosPlus extender running, and boot using that.

Can anyone share a working Xroar.conf for D64 with the extender and becker port?

Re: Nitr-OS9 vs OS-9

That suggests two possible approaches to me. 1) Os9gen on DragonData Os9 with the required modules, then hand move the boot track to comply with the CoCo 'boot' approach. Disadvantage of this is you need a new version of OS9gen to avoid having to do this every time. CoCo OS9gen might work though. 2)...

Re: No luck so far

Well, seems it's not straightforward to achieve. First attempt was making a hybrid Eurohard 2.0 OS9 with Nitr-Os9 DW drivers and a Nitr-OS9 boot setup (Os9 gen from within Nitr-OS9 to ensure a DW capable disk with CoCo boot track arrangement). That didn't work. Disk starts booting but never gets pas...

Re: Nitr-OS9 vs OS-9

To clarify a little... Is there any reason why the Nitr-OS9 device drivers and descriptors for DW can't be shipped across to DragonData or Eurohard OS9? I'm trying the process at the moment, but it's more involved than I'd expected... involving some Init module editing and I'm currently trying to wo...

Nitr-OS9 vs OS-9

I've just started messing around with Xroar, Dw4 and Nitr-OS9... After some messing around, I have Nitr-OS9 booting from Drivewire. Great. Now... how about running some application software. Hmm, not so great. It seems that thanks to Nitr-OS9's Level2 & CoCo3-centric ways, the Level 1 system has got...
