Configuration:
Micro-PC NDiS-111 Series
32 bits
Processor Type: Genuine Intel(R) CPU - 1000 MHz
Total Memory: 1024 MB (DDR2)
BIOS American Megatrends D111-011 / 2.10.1208


Hi,

I would like to test MenuetOS on an old Micro-PC.

I copied the OS from diskette image M32-086.IMG on a USB stick (Kingston) with Linux command dd and the Menuet files appear on the USB stick.

On the Micro-PC, I choosed USB stick Kingston as primary boot option and, for USB configuration, as Mass Storage Devices : Kingston + Floppy. Disabled "Hard Drive BBS Priorities" (Kingston is in "Floppy Drive BBS Priorities").

After saving BIOS configuration, I obtain the error: "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key".

It is possible to use MenuetOS on this old micro-PC? Did I make a mistake?

Thank you by advance for all help.

I've tried something else :

With a Linux computer, I deleted the old partitions on the HD of the micro-pc and created a new one (FAT32).

Then I copied the MenuetOS's files (from the 32 bits img) to the HD.

I copied the directory of MeOSload on the HD.

Copied MeOSload.com in the root directory.

I tried to add the line "MeOSload.com BOOT 1000" in the file RDBOOT.DAT.

After reinstallation of the HD on the micro-pc and reboot, I obtain : "Starting MenuetOS", "KERNET  MNT ?" and nothing else...

Of course, it is not the correct procedure but, for now, I not found a way to start Menuet OS 32 bits on the HD of this micro-pc nor from the USB stick.
