Hope this helps.....

NOTE: HDD folder have to be created manually.
You have to use bochs emulator to get bochsrc.txt working, it doesnot work with QEMU.
EDIT: OP updated , check again.

Thanks, it helped a lot.

Can anyone please help me with turnning on the application bochs?
It still keeps on turning itself off at the moment I turn it on.
I tested on the phone model vega n5 and galaxy s2...
Right before it turns itself off, the black screen with some letters appears just for a few sec and it returns to my applications screen...
I just want to inform you that the version of my android is 2.3.3.

Ok, so you need to have the sdl.zip folder extracted to the root of your sd. Then put in a bootable .img file(it has to be bootable!!!) And then it should work. If it. Says some info and then crashes your file is not bootable. Which os are you trying to use? If its xp or 95 you can pm me.

I did follow all steps correctly. I extracted the SDL.zip file to sdcard/SDL. And I also checked that my img file is bootable.What else do I have to do? I'm trying to run win95

How do I use bochsrc.txt to use the HDD folder as a drive? I cannot find it anywhere on windows explorer...
By the way, could you please tell me how to connect to the internet with windows in android?

Sorry, no internet yet, I might have time this weekend to try to work on it again.

Hello, I still cannot find a way to run bochs. I was told by someone to put SDL folder into the root of my phone memory. Where do I find root of my phone memory? Also, I have an img file that works properly on Qemu, but I want it to run on bochs too, since bochs allows me to access drive D.
Lastly, can bluetooth keyboard and mouse work on both Qemu and Bochs?

I get .iso file (one that should be later renamed to c.img) sized at 1.37 megabytes while saving winxp vhd by clicking Create ISO image file.
What the hell?

win95 makes realistic size img file, but still it does not load on bochs.

Ok just put sdl on the root of the sd ok? Good. Did you mean a bluetooth keyboard and mouse for a cimputer or special for android? Computer no, android maybe. Hope it helped.

Use better grammar please, i can barely understand you. 1.3 mb for wincp or 95 is too small that is not a real file. Pm for a winxp or win95 img ok? Your welcome.


Also, im in my phone and accidently thanked him, how do i remove thanks?

1.It is hard to make an emulator interact with a device's hardware. It is not natively running.
2.for posting new thread , go to the respective section and click "new thread" button which you can find above the 1st thread in that section. It is in yellow color
