Dear All,

I have an ISO fromat via dd from an old scsi unix:
dd if=/dev/hdc of=./all_files.iso
I have the following information from my iso:
parted ./all_of_disk.iso print
Error: /home/mohsen/all_of_disk.iso: unrecognised disk label
Model:  (file)
Disk /home/mohsen/all_of_disk.iso: 577MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: unknown
Disk Flags:
And :
fdisk -l  ./all_of_disk.iso
Disk ./all_of_disk.iso: 550.5 MiB, 577241088 bytes, 1127424 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

I think it's sysv unix. How can I detedct its' arch via qemu?
I would start off by running strings on the iso image, to see if
there's any helpful human-readable text in it that would more
usefully narrow down:
 * what the disk actually has on it
 * what OS it is
 * what CPU architecture it's for

Then you can probably make an educated guess at the image

-- PMM

I think it has Srv Unix about 1985, But i don't know about its arch.
