What is required to use CP/M? If I'm not mistaken, CP/M needs a disk drive.

oh, doesn't work on MSX 1? Is a disk drive necessary or can an SD card solution be used?

MSX-DOS is CP/M compatible and needs an MSX1 with disk drive and 64K RAM.

Spectravideo SVI-738 was sold with a CP/M 2.2 floppy disk. I think it did boot to 80 column mode. That is an MSX1 machine with MSX2 VDP. But why do you need CP/M?

I don't need CP/M, I just want to try out some software to relive my 80's days. I had a friend who used CP/M and I use to watch him, just want to test it out.
