The bug comes from the APM CPU idle function added in the Bochs BIOS. I am about to commit a fix.

You should also note that I have not been able to use the new
-kernel-kqemu option with the old bios. The bios in cvs was specifically
patched for the new kqemu support from my understanding so that is
expected. Just a quick heads.

booted correctly as well as Windows 2000 and Windows XP. I tried the
build with and without kqemu support and changed from gcc3.2 to gcc3.4
to no change. I then copied the bios from 0.8.0 and now all boots
correctly. My host system is Fedora 4 on X86_64. Is/has anyone else


this problem?

Yes, I just ran into the same problem with the bios.bin from the
2006-04-27_23 CVS snapshot. Thanks for tracking it down--you probably
saved me hours!

I was able to boot after reverting to the bios.bin from the
2006-03-27_23 snapshot. So the problem must have been introduced
within the past month.
