Add a floppy drive to the image, point the location at the .img file.

We had something before MS-Dos, but I don't remember what it was called.

I'm pretty sure you can just rename the extension .iso and it will still load.

FWIW, if you guys have not ran 3.1 for a while you should load it on an old computer you have laying around. It is amazing to see an OS boot up in 2 seconds. If I could actually get some internet apps to run it would be my OS of choice...

OK, I did that and I found a video:




I'll definitely take a look at this and see what is up with it. I installed the Chrome browser when it came out and it wasn't as nice as FF so I took it back off. This looks different so I'll do some investigation. Thanks!

Funny you mention this, as it's something I think about all the time.

My ole C64, bless its little 1.023 MHz heart, was up and displaying the command prompt almost before your finger had left the power switch.

The Tandy 1000HX which followed it years later was a tad slower, but still came up to DOS pretty quickly. That was the last machine I owned which had the whole OS in ROM.

The Amigas were pretty quick. So long as you had a hard drive, time from power to workbench was just a few seconds.


OTOH, we've still got it pretty good compared to a lot of the Big Iron of the 70s and 80s. Booting a PDP-10 into ITS was a rather involved affair.
