Hi!
Here is the manual for the installation.

How did you configure BlueMSX? Best way is to add the sunrise IDE so you can boot MSXDOS2 (you need to place MSXDOS2.SYS and COMMAND2.COM) If you want, i can upload a blueMSX IDE image which you can use as well.

DOWNLOAD BLUEMSX IMAGE

Hi, I created a SUNRISE IDE IMAGE which contrains Symbos installed. It is for BlueMSX.
You need to select in slot one a SUNRISE IDE, and choose the turbo-r config. Then you can select this HD image which you can download in the download link from my onedrive. You also need to add a mouse in BlueMSX in the Extra menu.

Hope you get it working. Please let me know.

It's not "for blueMSX", it's just a harddisk image, so it works in all emulators. The installation does require the IDE in slot 1 though.

Not all emulators, only MSX emulators with harddisk emulation. I think it's limited to blueMSX and openMSX! Wink

Good point ... but I never use RuMSX, except for the Help files (that I can read without using the emulator).

No working mouse, so I can't to do anything.

Wow? What is MiST? Never heard of it. Hope it works, I tried to do my best to help you. If not let me know.
Funny detail about this IDE image. I always thought it was for blueMSX only. Thanks Wink now I can use it again openmsx as well.

MiST is a FPGA device like the Ese3/1ChipMSX/Zemmix Neo
http://amigastore.eu/en/318-mist-fpga-computer.html

8bit4ever is selling a device that can use the MiST Firmware
https://www.8bits4ever.net/product-page/stmini

It can run firmware of many old 8 and 18 bit systems. I am interested in getting one for the Atari STe implementation and MSX2+, but I think I'm better off with the Zemmix Neo clone because I'm MSX user at first (cartridge ports!!)

According to screenshots this seems to me like a mass storage driver problem. Please see that the correct driver and partitions are selected during installation. In worst case a custom storage driver is needed for your device.
