Re: [Qemu-devel] Win95 Image does not boot, how can I debug where I am getting stuck

IMP/PHP IMAP webmail program 2.2.7
dd if=/dev/fd0 bs=512 of=win95.img
when fd0 contains a Win95 boot floppy with some diagnostics. Then
qemu -boot a -fda win95.img -hda win95 &
and run the diagnostics.
That should tell you if there's an error in the image itself, perhaps in the
MBR. If it's not in the image, then it's a bug somewhere in qemu. But that
should get you started.
