To reiterate what Michael has by now already said: the in-browser
emulator supports the disk *format* that Peter's emulator uses, but the
*Oberon system build* that Peter's disks uses—or the executables that
you would get by building Wirth's distribution or what's on
projectoberon.com—does not have the necessary system modifications to
work under the in-browser emulator.

(In fact, you should be able to find that same comment in the sources
that Michael has hosted on GitHub, because I contributed the change
upstream several months—maybe even a year or so—before I first
experimented with packaging the emulator as a single, portable file that
works offline.)
