Hi Jian,

I recommend you to make bootable USB flash or setup network boot.
For booting you can use Grub or Grub2, but genode's vesa driver can't use
some modern video adapters, and it can be solved with using patched version
of Grub from Adam Lackorzynski
Step-by-step guide with grub 1.xx bootloader:
1. Create bootable USB-flash with grub 1.xx
2. Copy directories fiasco and genode from your
BUILD_DIR/var/run/BUILD_NAME to usb disk, example for demo run script :
cd BUILD_DIR; cp -R var/run/demo/fiasco /mnt/usb; cp -R var/run/demo/genode
3. Copy grub config from BUILD_DIR/var/run/BUILD_NAME/boot/grub/menu.lst to
usb disk, example: cp var/run/demo/boot/grub/menu.lst
4. Boot from usb flash on PC

If you would like to use Grub2 you need rewrite Grub menu.lst in Grub2

Genode supports most of modern hardware, and you don't need usually to
special config for drivers.
