hi Radu, no symvbos does not need and installer. You just put the 4 ROMs in any 4 slots. Mine are in 8, 29, 30 and 31.

From there it just works.

Where did you grab the ROMs, are you using a physical ROM board or a flash solution?

You have to make a DSK with them on it and convert that to hfe.

I am at my desk now, here....
This is a DSK in HFE format with the 4 SymbOS ROMs on it.

I use ManageDsk - CPCWiki to create a DSK then the HxC software to convert it to hfe.

Basically, so you know next time, the HxC can't read any old file - it's not a mass storage device. It can only read disk images. So you must create a disk image, insert the ROM files into it and then convert it to hfe (the format that HxC recognises).
