Hi Natalia,

Is nextstep/openstep something that can be freely downloaded?

It would help if you can extract some SeaBIOS debugging info.  I've
uploaded a SeaBIOS image with the debug level set to 8 and serial
debugging enabled.  It is at:


Can you use this image with qemu, add "-serial file:mylog" to qemu's
command line, and forward the resulting "mylog" file back?

Also, please include the full qemu command line that you used.
