Running DosPlus (version 2.1) with Raspberry Pi 80286 processor emulator on BBC master 128.

Postby andrewn08 » Mon Oct 02, 2017 8:02 pm

(see WiFiSheep - YouTube video by Tom - Acorn BBC Master Raspberry Pi Co pro demo)

Has anyone got DosPlus booting straight from the SD drive 1 on the Retro Clinic's Data Centre with the Raspberry Pi 80286 processor emulator?
I've managed to get the Digital Research logo and then it keeps asking for command.com. (looks like it's trying to read the floppy drive)
Looks like it can't see the FAT partition on the data centre SD card and I'm wondering if this is even possible!?

(I don't have any facility to build new boot floppy disks from PC - www.cowsarenotpurple.co.uk)

If anyone has got a working disk image for data centre which I can CFRESTORE to my SD card, then please get in touch :)
Alternatively if someone can sell me a 5.25" or 3.5" dosboot disc with version 2.1 then that would also be great.
Is there anyone out there that can help?

I have a (large!) CF image that has DOS/GEM and a load of Panos and ARM co-pro stuff on it.

Cool, is it using dosplus version 2.1 to be compatible with 80286 and are you running this with raspberry pi emulator?

Pretty sure it is using 2.1 as I've had it running under the 80286 but I'll double check today.

Didn't I send someone a CF dump of a 2.1 install at some point? Was it ever uploaded?

Mine is definitely 2.1 - just checked on the 80286 on the matchbox copro.

The HD image is too big to email though (20MB zipped).

Sounds perfect! Have you got a drop box account or similar I can pull it from?

Good morning everyone. Apologies, please forgive me coming in to this but I've been having the same issue in creating media to install dos plus on my RPi board. I have a CF card on DataCentre, would it be possible to obtain a copy of an image?

Many thanks.

I think the Dropbox link I setup is still available - I'll PM it to you.
