How do you install Disk Drives into windows 95? I can’t seem to figure out how to do it!
Here what i put in:
imgmount C: [directory of windows 95.img]
mount D: [directory of folder containing games]
Drive D doesn’t show up in windows 95.9. December 2021 at 8:18 #9271adminKeymaster
imgmount c /storage/emulated/0/Games/win95.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023
imgmount d /storage/emulated/0/Games/dune2000.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023
boot -l c9. December 2021 at 11:49 #9272
Depends on the size of your disk images.
If you need some examples, I’ve already posted a bunch of empty hdd images with according parameters included in this thread: http://magicbox.imejl.sk/forums/topic/windows-95/page/2/#post-796710. December 2021 at 7:14 #9273
Both commands got an error saying
“The image must be on a host or local drive”
This happens a lot while mounting images10. December 2021 at 10:54 #9274adminKeymaster
If there is space or special character in the path then surround path with ”
Here are images with correct sizes, these images work with both cores11. December 2021 at 15:52 #9275
No it doesn’t have any quotes11. December 2021 at 15:56 #9276
Drive D finally cooperated and mounted the iso (this is for starcraft)
But the windows 95 image file still isn’t cooperating.11. December 2021 at 16:57 #9277
You can post your mounting commands here, so we can check. And what size is your C drive image?
I also only just realized that you are trying to mount a local directory as drive D in Win95. That won’t work, because Win95 requires you to only use iso images. It’s really annoying and rather tricky, but it’s the only way to get Win95 up and running in Dosbox.12. December 2021 at 5:32 #9282
mount C /storage/emulated/0/winemu/new
imgmount A /storage/emulated/0/winemu/new/win95.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,520
imgmount D /storage/emulated/0/winemu/new/Starc.iso -t iso -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023
“winemu” is a folder i use to dump anything related to emulation and “new” is where starcraft (starc.iso) and the windows 95 disk image is12. December 2021 at 5:34 #9283
I changed it up a bit but it still wouldn’t work
I already used drive C as the local directly so that i can mount drive A (win95 disk) but i just won’t work12. December 2021 at 5:38 #9284
Update: Windows 95 finally boot up but drive D still isn’t showing up12. December 2021 at 10:30 #9287
You have to mount both C and D drive iso images with the imgmount command. My autoexec section looks like this (Win95 on a 512 MB image, Diablo and MM6 on a 2 GB image, both on external sd card):
imgmount c /storage/0000-0000/Games/PC/Win95/c.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,32,520
imgmount d /storage/0000-0000/Games/PC/Win95/2GB_MM6_Diablo.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023
boot -l c12. December 2021 at 10:43 #9289
That’s what i did at first, it worked but after putting the extra parameters (t, fs, size) it jut gave the the error “The image must be on a host or local drive”. And even if it actually booted drive D never actually shows up :/12. December 2021 at 10:43 #9290
Wait how did you put files in an image file?12. December 2021 at 11:18 #9292
On PC, with UltraISO. It’s shareware, but has an unlimited trial period.
You then copy the iso onto the image file, and use something like Virtual Clone drive in Win95 to mount the iso as virtual cd rom.
