Start MS-DOS from a vinyl record

Quarantine seems to give generous time for experimentation. Like this computer engineer who ran MS-DOS from a vinyl record.

If you are old enough to you'll definitely remember the days when you loaded programs onto the Spectrum through one μαγνητοφώνου. Ο since the dawn of computers it has been a means of data transmission.

Slovak engineer Jozef Bogin in quarantine probably ended it. So what he did was start MS-DOS, but instead of using a traditional cassette, he decided to try a vinyl record.

In the video below you will see in detail all the steps, but we should warn you that it is recommended to turn down the volume of your speakers, as the sounds that are heard are piercing. Users of 80's machines certainly know.

As you can see, MS-DOS does not boot on a modern , but on a prototype IBM 5150. The audio loading process is actually surprisingly fast as MS-DOS 6.22s are rather small in volume.

According to Bogin's website there is a small ROM boot loader on the computer that handles the computer's built-in "cassette interface" and invokes the BIOS if all other boot options fail, e.g. floppy disk and hard disk.

Το πικάπ γυρνάει και διαβάζει μια αναλογική εγγραφή μιας μικρής μονάδας RAM, η οποία έχει μέγεθος 64K. Περιέχει έναν πυρήνα FreeDOS, τροποποιημένο από τον Bogin για να μειώσει τον όγκο, μια μικρο παραλλαγή του .COM και μια ενημερωμένη έκδοση του INTERLNK, που επιτρέπει τη μεταφορά αρχείων μέσω καλωδίου εκτυπωτή, τροποποιημένη ώστε να μπορεί να εκτελεστεί στο FreeDOS. Ο bootloader διαβάζει την εικόνα του από την εγγραφή ήχου μέσω του μόντεμ κασέτας, το φορτώνει στη μνήμη και εκκινεί το in this.

Αν και όλο αυτό μπορεί να ακούγεται σαν επιστήμη πυραύλων για μερικούς, είναι στην πραγματικότητα ένα πείραμα που θα μπορούσε να σας κρατήσει απασχολημένους εν μέσω καραντίνας. Φυσικά, δεν υπάρχει κάποιο όφελος, εκτός ίσως από τη διασκέδαση του παιχνιδιού με το and with the satisfaction that you accomplished it.

If you want to try it at home, Bogin gives through of all instructions. Good luck!! The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
