Compiling to a hard drive (C: not external)

Jun 5, 2012 at 10:57 PM
Is it possible to compile, use and boot my os on an internal hard drive( C: )? I have an old computer I plan to use for testing, and I heard that the hard drive has to be formatted to FAT32 before it is able to boot cosmos. How can I format the c: to FAT32 then put the OS files on it so it boots it? tl;dr How do I format my C: drive to FAT32 then put my Cosmos OS files on it to be able to boot?

Debugging will be the issue. Thats why we focus on VMWare for now,
although you can debug on a live PC too.
