see : viewtopic.php?f=33&t=1683#p18293
:arrow: This doesn't work : I see "Nor" on the display when inserting the USB stick

The emulator is in "NORmal mode".

Since you don't have any OLED or LCD screen, you need to use the indexed mode or the "autoboot"/file selector mode if you have an Amiga/Atari ST/CPC.

- In indexed mode you must use the indexed config file and name the files images DSKA0000.XXX, DSKA0001.XXX, DSKA0002.XXX (replace XXX by the original file extension.)

See the usage page for more details.

The HXCSDFE.CFG indexed config files is in the firmware archive :

DSKA0002.hfe

Welcome to the Emax nightmare ;)
The issue is that the OS version present on the sound disk doesn't match with the one loaded into memory.
Try to boot from the sound disk.

I do not have any emax disc.
Is there an image of a "universal" OS disc, that might boot the Emax?

Try to just select the sound disk and restart the emax with this disk.
