it looks like the problem is that windows me setup doesn't recognize the cdrom drive that qemu makes. I run qemu like this:
#put some lines in for comments. The command is everything in one line of course
#uses the cdrom device. doesn't work cause winme doesn't recognize it.
#Or I used:
#which doesn't work either
#boot from CD. This works cause I get the option which asks if I want to start from CD or
#HD and starting setup from CD works
#file to install on.
If I get in the winme installation menu it says
Put the winme installation CD in drive D (or in the CD station) Press enter to continue.
If I start qemu with with the image in /dev/cdrom the CD player starts reading when the setup starts. If I start from an image and add -cdrom /dev/cdrom the CD also plays but it won't get past that part
If I just try to run installation from my hard disk like this:
qemu -snapshot -boot c /dev/hda
Booting from hard disk:
L 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 #continues for a while
Which is in my experience a lilo error. What could be the problem here? I found a lot of people saying it was just something with /etc/fstab and hard disk + bios errors so I assume the bochs bios is the problem here.
Thanks for any help!
