    This is what I used to believe until tonight: I clipped a battery off of a 6300 I was using for testing, and now it doesn't pass POST (keyboard lights blink but nothing comes up on screen). It was...

    Okay, full test results follow. The new M24/6300 code is definitely a small improvement, and running the NEC code on an NEC V30 is an additional improvement.

    I stand corrected! In that case, I revise my earlier advice to "any TL/2 would be best".

    The TL is an 8086 while the TL/2 and TL/3 are 80286. Somewhat major difference IMO.

    Whoops, my bad! I was so ingrained with "must not attempt adjacent register reads on M24" that I confused myself into keeping it in compat mode. I'll switch the jumpers tonight and retest.

    I checked tonight at an idle DOS prompt and found that only IRQ5 is masked off (the BIOS must turn it on to perform a hard disk operation, then turn it off once complete). So unfortunately that's...

    I can check tonight. I also grabbed Micro-C and the IMD118c source to see if an obvious fix is obvious to implement.

    But why would the M24 mask IRQ6 off? Is the intention that an int 13h call...

    The "best" system is the TL/3, being the fastest system with Tandy graphics, and supporting both Tandy 3-voice audio as well as DAC audio. However, they're difficult to find and expensive.

    And there's always the HP Palmtop series. An 80186 (actually a "hornet" CPU) and DOS in the palm of your hand. I only finally acquired an HP 200LX this year.

    All EGA cards do not suffer from the "snow" problem. Only CGA cards (and some clone cards don't have "snow" either).
