AROS booting on x86_64

I wanted to test something 64bit on my new Qemu build, and for the heck of it wen to check out AROS.

And much to my amazement, there is a working x86_64 in the nightly build, 20131104!

To me it’s very cool to see a 64bit AROS… It’s the kind of thing we’d only dream about back in 1993.

  1. I tried loading 64-bit AROS on qemu-system-x86_64… on a Pentium 3. It., uh “booted,” but usable was not what I would define it as.

      1. Hey, you don’t need a 64-bit CPU to run Qemu’s 64-bit emulated CPU… although it’d be the only sane option.

        And it was a first-gen P3 too! Slot 1 fun!

    1. I can try… I’ve got no idea if Aros x86_64 can run 32bit stuff…. but I guess I can just run the 32bit version of Aros.
