View Full Version : Help with Compaq Deskpro 386/25M eISA slot address

March 28th, 2014, 12:45 AM

I'm trying to install an Archive 5945C tape drive into a Compaq Deskpro 386/25M. The tape drive system is a new-in-box system, came with SY-TOS for DOS, and specific instructions on how to install in a Compaq Deskpro 286. I'm running into some snags. I get a "No Tape Controller Present" error.

Reading the documentation tells me that I need to figure out the DMA, Interrupt and Address of the eISA slot that I put the controller board into, and learning this information is a bit of a challenge.

I have a ton more detail in a post on the Hardware section. Please read and reply there: (http://bit.ly/1dDWLsi)


(this was an accidental duplicate post, my newbie mistake, so I decided to make it an "addendum redirect" thread.

Thanks everyone!
