At June 26, Andre wrote, "If you used Sven's WMInstaller ..."

I'll guess that WMInstaller is accessible after booting from
AosCD.iso.

In Debian Linux, qemu appears to do that.  It is running on
a laptop with an 800x600 display and I see the upper part
of a window.  Would the Aos menu buttons be at the lower
edge, out of sight?  The window will not slide up beyond the
top of the screen.  Can the size be reduced to say 780x580?

Does anyone know whether WMInstaller under qemu will
have access to the target drive connected by an ATA-USB
adapter?

Thanks,               ... Peter E.

Yes. You'll find it in Startmenu->System->Installer.

The size can be reduced the same way as when running native, i.e. using the config string Init. Init=111 is normally 640x480x16. The bad thing is, that under qemu, it is quite hard to get into the boot loader menu since the boot process proceeds very quickly.

Not exactly... You most likely won't have direct access to the host operating system's drivers from within QEMU. If you are lucky, QEMU is able to provide direct access to USB drives (VMWare can do this) and it works with the A2 USB drivers. In that case, it would be possible but I never tested this under QEMU.

Sven,

ss> The bad thing is, that under qemu, it is quite hard to get into the boot loader menu since the boot process proceeds very quickly.

A possible "wish" for qemu is a step mode which would
allow intervention.

Thanks for the comments.  I'll focus back on the direct
installation,                    ... Peter E.
