    Is it possible with bochs 2.2 to run windows XP 64 bit?

      I uploaded ACPI tables and generator application to the bug report
      [ 1180890 ] IOAPIC in BOCHS

      But even with this acpi.bin I can't continue WinXP64 installation it freezes on the step "Starting booting windows" doing pause loop.
      This is already very good improvement ;)

      I guess there is a chance that already installed WinXP64 image will boot but I could not guarantee nothing.

      no i still get the "missing local apic" error :(

      You need a BIOS with ACPI MP table inside. Even for sinle processors (say thanks to the microsoft). I seen message in Bochs developers list that somebody made such BIOS, look for the mailing list archives.

      Couldn't you let bochs cache all writes to the underlying filesystem into memory and only write this to the flash memory device when exitting the emulator?

      Aditionally, you might want to make this delayed write optional on user request. That wise I can choose to discard any changes to the filesystem (usually this is what you want if you only ran some apps and didn't edit any data).

      you have to get the acpi.bin file make it 512 in size and put it as an optional romimage at the address 0xe0000. Then win-xp 64 should work!

      So, where can i get acpi.bin? Empty file gives no result.
