The Magnetic BePatch-O-Matic

BeBits page here
This program is yet another patch to allow BeOS R5 to boot on an Athlon XP. However, unlike other patches, this does not require a working BeOS install, running from DOS and patching the BFS direct. No boot CDs, R4, etc., required!

Note This patch does not patch everything required for complete system stability. This is written for personal use to make the OS boot, so kpatch can be applied.
Also, this is designed for DOS systems which load BeOS from a virtual partition using, rather than systems which have a BeOS partition. This system does not require the creation of a boot floppy; it is just a quick virtual partition hack.


The first, and probably last version. It makes BeOS boot!
