What is an HD file?
An HD file is a virtual hard disk used by the IBochs PC Emulator for Android. IBochs users can write data to this file just as they would a real hard disk. IBochs comes with one included HD file, named LBOCHS.HD.
IBochs uses LBOCHS.HD to save and load users' data. For example, users can write an operating system to LBOCHS.HD and then load that operating system from IBochs's boot menu. Users can also load operating systems from virtual floppy disks (.FD files) and CD-ROMs.
How to open an HD file
LBOCHS.HD is not meant to be opened. If your copy of LBOCHS.HD contains an operating system, you can use the file to load the operating system in IBochs PC Emulator (Android). To do so:
- Make sure your LBOCHS.HD file is stored in ~/Android/data/lb.myapp.lbochs/files.
- Open IBochs and press F12 to access the boot menu.
- Select 2. Hard Disk.
The operating system your HD file contains will then load in IBochs.
