BMC64 - How to run Console Commands ?

  • Hello,


    This is my first post there,


    I am a complete newbie to the world of Raspberry, and I am a little confused on how to perform certain actions to install BMC64.

    I have :

    • a Raspberry 3B + sD card
    • a Windows 10 PC
    • necessary files (bmc64-3.6.files.zip, C64 ROMS)

    My problem is here: I have to type the following commands, from what I read from the BMC64 site :

    • sudo fdisk / dev / sdb (make SURE / dev / sdb is the SDCard!)
    • Create your partition (s)
    • sudo mkfs.vfat / dev / sdbx (make SURE / dev / sdbx is the right partition!)

    Obviously these are not Dos / Windows commands, but I'm guessing, Linux commands. So I am missing something, in order to be able to send these commands to my SD card ...


    In the same way, I intend to install a Powerblock (power button) to the Raspberry:

    Again, it will be necessary to run commands from the console to install the drivers. But how to access this famous console from BMC64 ?



    Best regards,

  • To get started you have to format the sd card as fat32 (not Exfat32 Windows does) and copy the Contests of the Zip archive to the sd card afterwards.


    Probably guiformat is what you need for formatting:

    The Commands you stated are for use on Linux Machines.

    Only needed is a fat32 formatted sd card and the Files in Place. Nothing complicated

  • My problem is here: I have to type the following commands, from what I read from the BMC64 site :

    sudo fdisk / dev / sdb (make SURE / dev / sdb is the SDCard!)
    Create your partition (s)
    sudo mkfs.vfat / dev / sdbx (make SURE / dev / sdbx is the right partition!)

    This is for format the SD-Card to FAT on linux system. Most SD-Cards up to 32GB are often preformatted in FAT32-Format, so you don't need to reformat it.

    Simply extract the Zip-File of BMC64 to the root of the SD-card.
