Help On Burning BeOS 5.0 PE .cue file


#1

I have downloaded the BeOSArchive from Archive.org. I am trying to install any version of BeOS on a laptop (toshiba with an intel b940 cpu, one of the last pentium 4’s).

I am quite comfortable with using the Windows command line interface, cygwin+cdrecord, and cdrwin. In the past I have built my own BeOS 5 PE boot cd with the devtools, etc…

What is the recommended up-to-date release of BeOS 5 PE, whether it’s the personal edition or a modified version of the pro edition? BeOS Max edition?

Is there a free software that can burn the multi-track .cue file in that archive? I am using a work machine so I would rather not install a bootleg copy of cdrwin. There are two different .cue files for the intel version of BeOS Max:

dir *.toc *.cue
Volume in drive C is Windows
Volume Serial Number is 80C4-AC2D

I also have zeta 1.2 in an 800 MB ISO but no cue file, is there a way to burn it?

Finally, my last resort is burning the BeOS 5 Pro in the trial version of Nero .nrg format at 1x.

Any help is appreciated.

Try Haiku… if not done already:

ImgBurn can burn bin/cue just make sure you get a clean copy… they’ve had issues with malware recently from various hosting services putting the opencandy spamware in the installer. I I’d suggest running it through the virustotal site before running it though… apparently the malware is in the installer not the application itself :confused:

Ok. Part of my last job was removing malware but thanks for the warning. I’ll pull a clean copy out of web.archive.org.

Which brings up an interesting offtopic point, why have malware authors not secretly hosted malware, let it be archived by the ia_archiver bot at web.archive.org, and then point it there links there? It’s a long game, but still, it might be harder to take down.

Does haiku have an equivalent of BONE?


#6

We are binary-compatible with both BONE and net_server apps. Our own networking stack is itself neither BONE nor net_server, but something of a much saner design than either… :stuck_out_tongue:

Which system type should I use in PCEM?
