Re: USB/HDD/CD/DVD Booting

I may be wrong, but I think a hard drive is pretty similar to a floppy, you just have to change some of the numbers for tracks, sectors, etc.

I'd love to see a USB tutorial though.

Re: Demo15 / Floppy Disk / DMA problem

I had problems with my floppy read as well, and had to move the buffer. Try that.

Re: Setting up Visual Studio 2010

Have you added a cpp file to the project yet? I just tested it and I had to create a source file before the C/C++ options showed up.

Re: Chapters

Hello, Chapter 24 (Loaders) is planned for release in about two weeks. Currently there is no ETA on the second chapter to cover graphics due to no currently decided direction. A chapter covering the VESA VBE will probably be next to help ease the transition into VGA and SVGA. If it becomes official...

Re: Annoying Advertisements

People keep posting advertisements in their signatures, then they make one post (so that you can see the signature) and hope that it will attract people to their business... Honestly? They're just spammers. But they try to fit right in, either commenting on the thread or asking a semi-related quest...

Absolutely. I wanted to make my own file system too. I even began drawing up the specs and working on implementation, but it was tough going. So I decided there was no reason to reinvent the wheel -- at least right now.

I'm just now getting a chance to dive into the demo, and I was getting the page fault too, anytime I tried to do anything after entering usermode. I have the virtual memory manager patch.

Re: This site has been discontinued?

It is by far the best OS tutorial site I've ever visited, and I don't think it's been discontinued. Mike is pretty busy, so updates take a while.

Usually there will be a week of no one posting, then a week of a lot of posts, then back to a no posts, etc.
