|I'd like to try out Hactar on my laptop, but this laptop lacks a floppy disk drive. And this is needed to create the images for Hactar. My question is: Can someone create a hactar installation floppy and create an image from that, so that i can try hactar from qemu or any other emulator? Please?|
And yeah, the reason is because Ponche announced he is writing an linoleum RTM for Hactar.

|Now that is a very constructive post. |
Sorry, I can't help you Peterpaul.

|You mean you just need the Hactar image, or? If that's the case, there's instructions on how to get the image from the floppy writer executable on the hactar page: |
(I'm probably misunderstanding you, though...)
|If you need to use RAWRITE or something similar, truncate the beginning of the file "kernel/hactar.exe" until byte 4D2h, that is, remove 1234 bytes from the beginning of the file: what remains is the boot disk's RAW image, of exactly 1.44 Mb.|
|Gah! I probably lost it, but I had an image for use in Bochs.|
*goes to look and/or remake*
|Ok, I remade my installation.|
(P.S. If you use the DRIVER/GraphicsConsole, you'll need a fast computer. Unless you like waiting ~1sec for the interlacing to complete.)
cd/7zs/Hello! /hactar (182 Kb)
|Oh, I already posted a link to a Hactar image within the Hactar Lives thread in the Lino section. I didn't check the Whatever forum until just now. You should have requested it there. : P|
It was originally posted in this thread which discusses running Hactar under Dosbox and Bochs.
As a side note, there's another tread in this section with the exact same title as this one. : P
|Thanks guys. LKraiders image works perfectly in qemu! Now lets wait for Ponche to finish the rtm...|
tap, tap, tap..
