Bochs is indeed very slow.
I notice a few things:
*freeldr on bootdisk works better than freeldr from the RC1. maybe floppy
works better anyway?
*I succeed in running ReactOS in RAM.
-download the Bochs release
-add the cdrv.img to isolinux directory
-change isolinux.cfg : label ros (newline) kernel memdisk (new line)
-setup bochs to use both the freeldr diskette image and the created cdrom.
boot from cdrom
-boot from cdrom, load ReactOS bootloader
-in ReactOS bootloader, select F8 -> custom -> disk -> 0 (floppy)
-now bootloader from floppy runs, bootvideo.sys does work OK it seems this
ReactOS runs and reports 92MB (Bochs:132, cdrv.img loaded into ram by
and then still loads slow despite being loaded into RAM (must be Bochs
any interest/remarks/questions welcome. If necessary I can upload my
anyone have a faster Bochs for WinXP ? (time runs very fast though, in
now to test the GUI..I get no response but that's probably Bochs's fault..
oh well..one Win32 compatible OS running in system RAM :)
diskless clients here we come!
