msx-DOS in CPC ???
« on: 14:52, 30 November 11 »
Last weeks I discovered the Aleste... (Siberian clone of CPC). There are some ROMs in Net about Aleste going to msx-DOS, read FAT12 floppy,... these are for CaPriCe32 and MESS...
I dream with type |msx in my CPC and go to MSX-DOS like Aleste...
 
Do you think is posible transform these ROMs for real CPC, use it, and go to msx-DOS aleste version by Patisonic(Siberia) ?
What purpose? FAT12-16 for CPC, finally...

[BonnyDOS can read FAT12 on drive B: -or A: with ABBA switch- ]

Of course!!
http://www.aleste520.narod.ru/files/caprice/caprice32-aleste.rar Open it and BDOS.rom is in rom folder, but don't work on emus ¿? more assembler knowledge than mine is needed, sig!
BDOS rom works in original and in CapriceAleste in rom number 3...

&

http://www.aleste520.narod.ru/files/aleste/roms.rar Aleste roms back-up. Roms for MESS. Rename alt512.bin to alt512.rom ... this is all firmware, basic 1.1... and more? rom (64k) ¿This must be cut in 16k roms?
It works for me on WinCPC, WinAPE... like lower 0 rom, not upper 0 (basic) rom ¿?... more assembler knowledge than mine is needed, too.

In MESS or CapriceAleste emus you type |msx on CPC side and go to msx-dos, but in WinAPE nothing happen... :-[

Version 2 of Megaflash will be fine to help ¿?... Topic:How to change the content of an OS-ROM (Lower-Rom) I want change it for my CPC systems too: Aleste boot, personalized boot... see tooCPC Dual Bios on http://www.amstrad.es/downloads/revistausuariosamstrad2.rar

To know more: http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Aleste_520EX Nocash and Arnoldemu was working on it, maybe they help us. Arnold emu aleste's version in progress... In future... Aleste's roms or msx-dos inside real CPC, yeahh!!!
