The supported part seems to be clear, but host platform is another matter.
http://www.erikveen....emupuppy/#8.2.0 seems like a nice packaging method to reduce the number of files.

Sure , what I meant was another thing.
On this page there is currently a release that is called 1.0.1 already compiled:
With this "history" note:
In which way is your release different from the above? (meaning that IF "nothing") it makes little sense to have yet another "version in the wild" and only adds to the existing confusion on "where to get a pre-compiled" release.
Most probably it is just a case of "converging independent evolution" , I am only trying to easen the interconnectedness of all things and avoid downloading your version if not necessary.
Well the #1 big thing is reproducablity... Me being to build it as well is a 'good thing'.. That being said, the NE2000 ISA adapter is usable in my build (0x320 / int 10), I renabled the AdLib! card (you know for MS-DOS games), and I have shortcuts for control-alt-delete that makes using Qemu with NT guests usable. (Control+alt+d) and a quick reset, via Control+Alt+r.
I know it may not seem like much but for running NT 4.0 on the i386 or MIPS its a BIG big thing, the 'sendkey control+alt+delete' thing in the console gets real old real quick!

As this topic seems to host the QEMU compile experts:
Any idea if it's possible to create a static win32/win64 build for i386+ guests where:
 as few as possible files are used (preferably only qemu.exe, but if needed also bios.bin/vgabios.bin)
 file creation can be disabled as intention is to be able to use on read-only storage medium.
 only short filenames are used? including the reference to the vga bios file
0.x series seem like a nice start except for the vga bios file exceeding 8.3 filename limits with no solution except sourcefile hacking and recompilation.

Still doesn't boot Win 7 64-bit from USB or an ISO though!
steve6375, when you say still doesn't boot, are you trying to do a full install from qemu? The reason I ask is because I use qemu simple boot v1 and it will boot my Windows 7x64 from USB or my Windows 7x64 ISO but haven't tried to do an "install". I just use this method to do a quick, simple, will this boot with the changes I made kinda thing.
Not sure if this helps or not.

Thanks, but I tried that before. I just tried again and it still does not work.
If I set it to boot an ISO file on my hard disk (Win 7 Ult x64) then it halts (not a 64bit CPU).
If I rename the qemu-system-x86_64.exe file to .xxx then qemu still runs (so it must be running the x86 version qemu.exe).
If I replace qemu.exe with the x86_64 exe and then run QEMU Simple boot it still crashes (0000005D error).
I am running on my Dell Win 7 64-bit SP1 system - what setup do you have?

I never let mine get that far but I did try to do a complete load Win7x64 last night and I got the same blue screen you do. I usually just do a quick boot with gemu simple boot just to make sure my grldr is installed correctly and that I can see the "Windows is loading fine" screen if I am in a hurry. I usually use Virtual Box if I intend to do a test load or I do a test load from a real machine from a USB HDD that I use for nothing but test loading.
