No i8088/8086 here. I started with 8080 + cassette tape and wrote several CP/M bioses, then I managed to get a 68010, and did a SBC with it, running CP/M 68K. after working with 68K, when I first read the 8086 manuals, I decided to never touch it. my next computer was a 386, running unix.

I mean this tutorial:

Please follow it to the letter.

And please try to follow the installs steps, with xpm, as described in

µOS++ may look not very active, but it is is fully functional, and in use in several large projects.

I temporarily suspended development for developing the xPack tools needed to build µOS++ and tests, and I'll resume development as soon as possible, since I plan to use it in the new project templates.
