Tried colorForth again, this time with VMWare Player. Still no dice. The error message:
VMware Player unrecoverable error: (vcpu-0) NOT_IMPLEMENTED C:/ob/bora-34682/bora/devices/floppy/floppy.c:3163 A log file is available in "C:\Program Files\Bochs-2.3\colorforth\vmware.log". A core file is available in "C:\Documents and Settings\jcomeau\Application Data\VMware\vmware-vmx-3776.dmp". Please request support and include the contents of the log file and core file. To collect files to submit to VMware support, run cscript vm-support.vbs. We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.
Here's one way, using Cygwin, to create the floppy image file:
dd if=/dev/zero of=a.img bs=1024 count=1440 dd if=color.com of=a.img conv=notrunc
And my configuration file is cf.vmx. It boots up partway; the virtual screen shows some illegible writing across the bottom. But then I always get the aforementioned error. I've tried tweaking the vmx file to no avail. Hmm, what next?
