This BSP does not have a configuration for rtems-tester. Since sim-scripts boot using a virtual floppy which loads the .exe from a vfat, I am not sure how it would get done in rtems-tester. Trying the -kernel option doesn't seem to work.

It would be nice to get this BSP in the new testing framework.

A key part of doing this is getting a single boot loader. It mean both sides of the testing line up.

The grub build of grub2 I did read the grub configuration file from disk which allowed the user to edit the exe to be loaded. I am not sure if this is best path or if we need to review the boot loaders.

Is this testing on qemu ?

I can test with PC hardware using iPXE as a bootloader. The rtems-test command has a series of hooks that let you convert or create specific images.
