Quote from: "brams"Would you not be able to boot the OS 4.2 installer using a USB floppy disk drive?, I have one and will try it tonight and report back.
Quote from: "brams"Can you give me a little walk thru on how you got OS 4.2 running on Parallels, it's hanging (beachballing) at the "Starting OPENSTEP" panel.
QuoteI put in my BeOS 5.0.3 CD, the machine boots that fine, however when I get the the license screen I cannot accept as the trackpad and keyboard are not working.
Quote from: "cuby"This also happened two or three times on my system. Try rebooting Openstep with the -v option. I had to reduce the memory available to Openstep to 128 MB to be able to boot (256 didn't work).
Quote from: "dravier"As a fan of BeOS I have tried to get my favorte x86 OS to run on anything possible (all be it with marginal effort due to time restraints). I have encountered this issue both with emulators and x86 hardware. For whatever reason some systems (especially notebooks) do not comply with Be's concept of proper input devices. Basically, don't use BeOS as a benchmark of any kind.
