So I'm using Vagrant with Xenial64 my host is a Windows 10 machine. My problem is, the VFD. Since windows 10 looks impossible to make a bootable VFD, bcs VFD(software) don't run at this version of the system. So how to do it in Ubuntu. I really want to do mah own bootloader but I have searched a lot and nothing.

Plz help me m8s. :oops:

Hello,

For Windows, I always recommend ImDisk which supports disk image creation, mounting, and partitions. You can also write a custom utility in about 10 lines of C to install the boot sector code. For Linux, everything that you need is already described in the Wiki here.
