Installing and running
Installation on floppy disk
Installing and running AMC-OS on a (virtual) floppy disk is currently the simplest way to run it.
Real floppy disk
With a real 3"5 floppy disk drive, after compilation, in a DOS or Windows command line, type :
> CD SRC >SRC> INSTALL
This will copy all required AMC-OS files on the floppy A:, including replacement of boot sector.
Virtual floppy disk
You may use a tool like vfd (Virtual Floppy Drive) to mount a virtual floppy disk drive on drive A:\. Then follow the procedure for a real floppy disk drive.
Running AMC-OS from a floppy disk
Normal boot process
Just insert your floppy disk in your drive, and reboot!
Configure a simple host (type Other), then specify your physical floppy drive, or your floppy image to boot on. Start the VM!
Supposing your floppy disk, virtual or not, is in A:\, you can just start AMC-OS in QEMU with (from QEMU directory) :
qemu.exe -fda a: -boot a
When using a disk file
amcos.flp, you can start QEMU with :
qemu.exe -fda amcos.flp -boot a
