Post subject:  KolibriOS install on a floppy

hello,
I have an old computer witch I want to connect to my tv to watch movies and internet. Is this possible?
I have tried a lot of times to make an 'kolibri' floppy, but the computer says "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key." This is the same when there is no floppy inside it. In my BIOS is the floppy the 1st drive and there is no harddisk inside the computer.
Can you help me with innstalling KolibriOS?
The computer has also 2 dvd-drives and USB/SD ports.
BTW: on the page where I can download KolibriOS the floppy-download is 2.2 MB, so it is too big for a floppy. I have used a coupple older files, wich are smaller.
I hope you can help me.
Jan

hi,
You should only use one of official KolibriOS releases, none of those is 2.2Mb
Please follow the links shown on our frontpage:

I guess the problem is an archive. Jan741, "7z" file is an archive file, which you should unpack first with free 7z archiver. After unpacking, you'll have a lot of document pages and file called "kolibri.img". It's floppy image, which you can write on floppy only with RawWrite/WinImage/dd/SomethingElseLikeThis. Also, you can install "kolibri.img" on your SD/USB stick or Hard Disk. Read documentation for further info. If something will be unclear, ask here. Good luck :)

The file M32-086.iso is 1.40 MB so can't be write on floopy. Should be writed?
I don't remeber when last time used this hard drive and disk but question is:
1. We should just copy M32-086.iso on disk and run in boot normaly like old dos disks before format w95?
2. Or need more actions to prepare kOS?

There is Menuet instalation
http://menuetos.net/download.htm
Installer for Windows: MDW64-1.28.80.EXE
but only x64 that made https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/menuetf ... -t850.html
1. Anybody know some instalation for x86-32 for mOS?
2. Can kOS prepare some easy way to install something like this but for x86 and x64 for floppy?

I tried with kOS in wariable ways to install eg usb, floppy.. and all fails. I planing describe this in other posts, but use my old computer in this way is interesing. Looking back to work with asm in this : )

OK, I found this viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2487&p=71965#p55048
..but I think that instalation FAQ should be prepared on wiki as "How to install"

I really don't know wich version/files should I use for floppy and how to install.
In case fo this problems on laptop
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2487&p=71965#p71963

On PC where I have floppy exist only boot from floppy,hdd,cd.
Soo.. i tried to copy files to floppy that kinst done on usb memory flash. But of course.. can't run this.. "wrong disk" etc.

I don't understand why kolibri operate on .img file (kolibri.img) not the packet of files to run on floppy or usb flash or hdd.

There is additional missundestanding

  1. In http://www.kolibrios.org/en/download -in Universal image Flash/HDD
  2. In http://archive.kolibrios.org/en/ - is Floppy image

But there is no supprt probably from 1 to 2 (floppy), eg. knist 1.85 can be on 1.38 floppy disk, and can't install on disk kOS
Need info on 1 about version, to be clear here. Can be useful in future.
