I am thinking of creating my own OS. I downloaded bochs for a test machine, and now I need a 'floppy' to boot from (it boots from .img files). I am looking for free software to create bootable disk images. I have neither physical floppies or a floppy drive. My requirements are:
I need a way to create a bootable disk image.
I need a way to manipulate files on the 'disk'.
The best software I found was VFD, but I have Windows 7 64-bit, and VFD is explicitly designed to work only on 32-bit hardware. I searched high and low on Google and I couldn't find anything both free and useful.
Does someone know of software that can do this?
