No emulator can. Also, FYI, BOCHS provides a CPU slow down factor of cca 100 :surprised: , while the floppy can be even faster than "real" ;-)

Also, an emulator can provide a restricted instruction set (only 80386, only oldest Pentium, only 8086 (not BOCHS) ), but still might not emulate "strange" side effects (early 80386 PM "HIMEMX" issues, 8086 illegal code, ...) correctly.

BTW, BOCHS really has a Mouse-BUG : the mouse driver (both CT 2.1b4 and Logi-Mouse) "sometimes" hangs on initialization :-(

This is a LOGITECH mouse driver, but some software expect here
the following string:*** This is Copyright 1983 Microsoft ***
