Starfield in a bootloader (No OS)

Last Updated or created 2023-07-17

Here is the starfield running from a bootblock loader (No MSDOS)

I threw my back out last week, so I could not move the old 8086 to a better place. I wanted to prepare this machine to boot from floppy disk.

The starfield above boots into VGA mode 13h (320×200 256 colors)

This one also has a Sound Blaster, so I can test music in a boot sector also!

My 8088 (v40) board has VGA also now.
I’m waiting for my ISA-PCMCIA card as replacement for a harddisk/floppy
