The instructions seem pretty clear - http://www.magicschoolbook.com/computing/os-project

What's your problem?

I tried to install MSB-OS in VirtualBox for Windows 7 64 bit, the following screenshots show it:

What are the your opinions about MSB-OS?

I've just realized who you are.

Hi QR,

If you can't get it to load and run on that emulator, it may be incompatible with it. I've only ever run it on real hardware, Bochs and Qemu, and it doesn't always work first go in those emulators - it sometimes refuses to respond to keyboard input. I do all my work directly on real hardware though and I don't have time to fix emulator issues.

My OS should be regarded as a curiosity though rather than something worth learning to use, unless you hate programming languages so much that you'd rather work directly with machine code. If anyone ever shows that they're keen enough to work with it (by building a reasonably complex program with it to prove it), I'll make a more advanced version available to them (with the indexing system completed so that any code cell can link dynamically to any other, and with the ability to use flash drives instead of floppy disks), but I doubt that need will ever arise.

@David Cooper,

Thanks for the your response!

This reminds me I had keyboard problems with FreeDOS in Qemu. I tried out a lot of text editors. Almost all worked fine on real hardware, (a Thinkpad X61,) but in Qemu, all the good editors received special keys as double events. Press backspace once and two characters would be deleted. I can't quite remember the details, but I remember it was enough to make the editors unusable.
