I tried fMSX, RuMSX, OpenMSX and BlueMSX and never found IDE option.
Only BlueMSX shows at harddisk item: no controllers

So, how to do it? I'm really new on MSX scene.

For openMSX use the 'ide' extension and specify that hard disk image.

IDE in BlueMSX can be found under File/Cartridge slot X/Insert Special

The screenshots are in dutch, but you get the idea of where to find it.

First add the IDE controler:

Second, mount the image to the IDE controller:

Then after starting it should boot from the disk image i uploaded. (use slot 1)

Now it works, but diskimage with SymbOS requires reconfigure system.
Now is this thread complete.
Thank you all for each help.

Nice! I created the image for the bluemsx turbo-r config. Probably you selected a different machine. Did you manage to get the mouse working as well?

Thank you for correction.
Now I used Turbo-R config and it works.
Feeling?
Amstrad is less, but still it is problem with horizontal resolution limit.

Last Q: Is possible to start BlueMSX to state when was closed?
Or use STA file in command line? I found nothing about in help.
