anyone got winme running via qemu or bochs


Did winme also start by saying you have to put the CDrom in while you have the cdrom in? How do you get past that message. Is there some way to emulate or fake the Cdrom drive that I missed?

it looks like the problem is that windows me setup doesn't recognize the cdrom drive that qemu makes. I run qemu like this:

Code:
qemu
#put some lines in for comments. The command is everything in one line of course

-cdrom /dev/cdrom 
#uses the cdrom device. doesn't work cause winme doesn't recognize it.
#Or I used:
-cdrom /winme.iso
#which doesn't work either


-boot d 
#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

~/hd.img
#file to install on.
If I get in the winme installation menu it says
Quote:
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:
Code:
qemu -snapshot -boot c /dev/hda
I get:
Quote:
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!

I also tried with bochs now and it gives the same problem. I also tried with more CD drives in the bochsrc file but the setup wouldn't recognize it. It looks like it starts from the CD and then suddenly can't find the CD anymore or doesn't recognize it?
