Various virtualization fun, including games & productivity!
I just tried commenting out the IDE CD-ROM that is on by default on Qemu, and booted up a ‘restore’ CD I cooked up a while ago, and lo it almost works. OS/2 boots up, but the keyboard is unresponsive… The cursor flashes away it almost acts like it is alive but without any input it just sits there dead.
I haven’t tried booting from floppy although I would assume it’d fail just in the same manner. For anyone wanting to mess with it, just disable the cdrom in vl.c & recompile.
