I highly doubt that you have to do this for a systems class...

SkyOS is not freely available so they probably won't use it in class. Also, since you have only one post, my guess is that you downloaded an old version from obscure places which is breaking copyright laws.

Asking for help on the official forum for a pirated copy? :shock:

No, SkyOS is not free. You are absolutely wrong in that belief, unless you have obtained a copy of SkyOS predating version 5.

If that is the case, I don't imagine for one moment that you would be able to attract any attention that would be worthwhile, for assisting you to boot your version of SkyOS.

If you know his username, we might be able to assist you.


Also, why not just ask your teacher?

Sorry to be rude.

  • In your initial post you mentioned SkyOS 5, which was never free
  • Versions before SkyOS 5 are free but no longer supported and not available for download on this site any more.
  • If your teacher gave you the copy, he may have a licence, or he may have given you a pirated copy. If you send me his username or the first half of the serial key in personal message, then I can verify his license (I have access to that information)
  • which build of SkyOS do you have (should be mentioned on the bootscreen)?
  • As for your problem, look at the debug output that comes from the serial port, probably a driver issue with some hardware part in the PC. I suggest VMWare.
  • No further support without more details, sorry
