Hi Phil,

i dont have that problem with the HD install. i see a blinking
underscore cursor.

my grub settings are nothing special:
title ForthOS
root (hd0,1)
kernel 8+700

btw, do you know what kernel setting boots ForthOS2 ?

i dont know how Andy figured the offset+blocks needed to boot ForthOS1.

passing in different values of X in "kernel 8+X", the minimum accepted
was X=650, but all values larger got the same output from grub, and
booted up the same. even if i knew how to boot ForthOS2, would it
look different?...
