    You didn't say what kind of machine this is, but if the NIC is in an 8-bit ISA slot then you must make sure that the NIC is a 3C509B. The non-B variant doesn't work in 8-bit mode.

    Thanks for testing Jim, I hope you get the machine in working order again.

    Nope. Make sure that the MFM controller is not configured for two drives (check jumper settings).

    BTW, on a slightly...

    There is no such requirement. USE!UMBS.SYS will accept any block size. The example command line in the source file is just that - an example (assuming that is where the confusion comes from). It will...

    You might want to change that. "Compatibility mode" is only useful if you want to use old versions of the BIOS. Note that you will have to reflash the ROM and also likely repartition the drive if you...

    This has been discussed before and everyone agreed on having the BIOS print the revision number just like you described. The problem is that it requires changes on the server side, and no one knows...

    Bigger cluster sizes also means less fragmentation and faster file I/O in general. And I don't see how one or two extra drive letters would be a problem.

    That's actually very common in my experience. I suppose a lot of code written for 808x just wasn't updated for the 286.

    That is similar to how some old MFM controller BIOSes behaves. If 2 or more drives are already installed they will refuse to install their own drives. So that's why MODULE_MFM_COMPATIBILITY was added...

    Haha.. yes, but "she" usually wants it bigger, not smaller. :D


    That's too bad. It would have been nice to be able to enter emulation mode without using an interrupt.

    To me, "not bootable" is not the same thing as "unplugged". So which is it?

    Newer versions are available from here. Not that it matters in this case.

    I have no idea where you got this from but it's completely false. The standard 16-bit IDE interface is actually the only controller type that is always supported in every single build of the BIOS.

    IMHO, the simplest solution is to have this in AUTOEXEC.BAT;


    echo off
    cls

    You'll still have a blinking cursor but I doubt that will cause any screen burn-in. :)


    Optimized it a bit. :D
