VIRTUAL 8086 MODE EBOOK!
Chapter 15 Virtual Mode. The supports execution of one or more , , , or programs in an protected-mode environment. An program runs in this environment as part of a V86 (virtual ) task. Virtual mode. In the microprocessor and later, virtual mode (also called virtual real mode, Vmode or VM86) allows the execution of real mode applications that are incapable of running directly in protected mode while the processor is running a protected mode operating system.Overview · Usage · Virtual mode · bit and VMX support. I think this means that virtual mode can access to system memory and hardware devices. No, not really. In virtual mode there is also.

Also, the V86 monitor can do things like map memory pages, intercept calls and interrupts, and preempt the real-mode program, allowing real-mode programs to be multitasked like protected-mode programs.
This instruction is normally use to return from an interrupt. Virtual 8086 mode other words, if you are running Windows or have emm in memory, you can't do a "raw" switch into protected mode it causes an exception.
Kernels below 1MB It has been suggested that you map your kernel to a 'high' logical address e. This is especially important with large kernels which leave no room for VM86 code below 1MB, or when larger programs are virtual 8086 mode to run within the VM86 box.
The purpose of a V86 task is to form a "virtual machine" with which to execute an program. Memory addressing and interrupts[ edit ] The most common problem virtual 8086 mode running code from protected mode is memory addressing which is totally different between protected mode and real mode.
As mentioned, virtual 8086 mode working under VM86 mode the segmentation mechanism is reconfigured to work just like under real mode, but the paging mechanism is still active, and it is transparent to the real mode code; thus, memory protection is still applicable, and so is the isolation of the address space.
The hardware provides a virtual set of registers via the TSSa virtual memory space the first megabyte of the linear address space of the taskand directly executes all instructions that deal with these registers and with this address space.
