Wyse Unix Lives Again! (sort of)

I was waiting for this for a long time. Recently I came in to possession of a box of 5.25″ floppy disks, among them following find:

Thanks to efforts of Al Kossow of bitsavers.org and Michal Necasek of OS/2 Museum we got the system to boot on VirtualBox!

Unfortunately we are missing the rest of the system which was distributed either on 15 floppy disks or a tape. If anyone has it, please let me know…

Little bits of information I have found on the web about Wyse Unix:

Interestingly Wyse Unix is a supported os emulation for iBCS.

Update: A full install tape has been found and the system has been fully installed

  1. I have uploaded result of imdu /b.
    I have tried Bochs 2.3 – weird characters. Bochs 2.4 blank screen. Qemu 1.1 and 1.2 – blank screen. Can you try other emulators? Or perhaps I’m converting or running it in a wrong way.

  2. WYSEBOOTraw.zip works in bochs, but it print black text on black screen, I have to use Copy button to see the screen contents.
    BTW it fails to boot in vbox 4.1.16.
