NitrOS-9 works on the Keil emulator. I just tested 6309 NitrOS-9 on with
the 6309 version of Keil. There is one problem that must be satisfied
for this to work.
NitrOS-9 is distributed on a JVC type disk image. While this works with
the Keil emulator it is not the native format. Best results or maybe the
only way to run NitrOS-9 is from a .dmk image. For some, this could be a
I use several emulators so have available wimgtool from MESS. I used
this program to create an 80 track double sided .dmk OS-9 disk image. I
mounted this image and a NitrOS-9 distribution disk (renamed to .os9) in
MESS and booted NitrOS-9. Just to be sure I then formatted the blank
.dmk image and then backed up the JVC .os9 disk to the .dmk disk.
The new .dmk version of the NitrOS-9 distribution disk booted and ran
normally using the Keil emulator.
Anyone who has problems reproducing the above can contact me directly
and I'll try to talk you through the procedure.
