Part of my build process looks like this
5) Link inner core
ORL.Link Modules ~
ISO.SetBootFile RISC.img
ISO.Load Modules.bin

6) copy all Oberon files into boot image

    I never used this serial link stuff. No Oberon-0, no PClink... Much too much hassle.
    My build process is built around a module called ISO.Mod; this module writes an ISO image that can be burnt onto the SD card.
    With ISO
    - I can copy Oberon files from and to the disk image.
    - I can look at the Oberon directory in the disk image 
    - I can write the Oberon boot sector
    - I can look at the MBR s needed.
    Basically, what System does but on the ISO disk image

        Prof. Wirth built the system by meticulously transferring everything 
        across the RS232 link, using a special Inner Core imported by a simple 
        command interpreter on the RISC5 called Oberon0.  See section 14.1 of 
        the book:
        Since this process depended heavily on another Oberon system on a host 
        computer, I made some rather hacky cross-tools to build a downloadable 
        SD-card image for projectoberon.com.
        I explained some of the (mainly defensive) rationale for the format of 
        the RISC.img image in a previous post:
