Silly question, but is it possible to get Windows 95 to the stage you've got it at there on the current revision (r14598)? I'm guessing not though what we're seeing here is work in progress instead? Really good to see though. How's the performance as well?

There have been no changes to i386/PC checked in today, so that's a "no" smile

I guess I should qualify my earlier post and say I don't know if it'll work fine out of safe mode but should if you have a installed image which I don't. The setup takes to long for me to wait though right now. Also, the plug-and-play setup part kills the mouse.

You'll need a small patch against the current rev to boot it. I'll submit it to Barry in a bit.

This is Win95 OSR2, I believe - the boot screen is the one that says "Windows 95 / Microsoft Internet Explorer".

That's OSR2.5. OSR2 was 4.00.950B.

The FM Towns version of Win95 isn't quite working, yet. While booting, you get the initial boot screen, then the startup menu (automatic if last boot failed), then an IRET returns to an unmapped address, and generates a page fault. The fault handler then returns back to the same address it just faulted on, causing another page fault, and so on. MESS eventually bombs out.

Does Windows 95 boot from a clean install in to MESS or only as an image installed in to say Bochs and then copied over to a MESS chd file, or both?

Mike: I would assume a MESS-hosted install should work too (if you follow Haze's tips), but I used an image that I installed on Bochs.
