@prodatron
The problems seems to be connected with FLOPPYDRIVE.
I've tried with an overwrite of your 2.1 to the one I was using before instead of make a NE-CLEAN installation.
It starts but it doesn't see the floppy, even if I add manually to the cmass storage option in control panel.
I've tried with different models of MSX (FS-A1GT and NMS-8245) naturally changing the configuration of DEVICE and DRIVERS but with no results.

Symbos starts up with old color set, but everytime I click on a desktop icon (also control panel) it gives me an error.

After booting you cannot start the icons directly. First you have to setup the correct system path!
Can you go to START then RUN and then BROWSE ? And can you Browse your HD ? If so .. you have to start appcp.exe to set the correct system path!! Sytem icon and then General TAB.. !! Set the system path where all the EXE files are!
For example (C:\APPS\)

To explain it visual .. see screenshot!

So after booting:

1. Go to START
2. Go to RUN
3. Go to Browse
4. Browse to the Symbos Folder and find Appcp.exe
5. Start Appcp.exe
6. Go to the SYSTEM icon
7. Set the path where the .exe files are (example: C:\SYMBOS\ ) Don't forget the last \
8. SAVE the settings in your START menu or use the FILE menu in the ControlPanel

@Giuseve: Unfortunately there is currently no floppy disc driver for the TurboR. So you should only add the sunrise driver. This works fine in BlueMSX.

@prodatron
Hallo.
Now it works on PHILIPS MODEL if I setup floppy as drive B. Doesn't work setting drive as A.
As Prodatron said floppy doesn't work on Panasonic.

I set up also the APP path (my one is c:\apps\). Control panel is in multicolor, all athor apps still aren't.
@edoz. What a nice background image: where is it and where are your nice games? :-)

Good Job guys !!!!

@Giuseve, I am glad, that it is working now! You are right, more autodetection stuff is really important.
16 colour support is a new feature of the 2.1, so most apps still dont support it Smile

@Giuseve, My Tetris game can be downloaded from the msx.org database website:

MSX.ORG DOWNLOAD SECTION

I will upload my backgrounds that I have created also but first have to collect them from my MSX.

You can also look on Prodatrons website for more gfx and movie files for SymbOS ... they are not included in the beta package.
See his website : SymbOS Website
