    Actually, no. The result of conflicting resources was rarely a system that would no longer boot at all. It would make the conflicting devices not work or the system freeze when trying to use them,...

    For what version of DOS? The DOS Shell included in 5.0 comes with that feature built-in. You just have to enable it once.

    You could write batch files for the various versions of Windows that will set the path correctly and rename the folder of the Windows version you start to "c:\windows". Of course, that means you need...

    That really depends on the graphics card itself. Max. colors won't change, as you can do 24 bit already with 1 MB (then limited to 640x480). With 2 MB, you can do 800x600 in 24 bit, and with 4 MB,...

    Nothing will happen, apart from a bad-sector check done by the drive, because the 386 can not bypass the IDE circuitry and that will simply not do a low-level format.

    @alank2:
    You must be thinking about the IBM PC line of systems only, as on the Atari and Commodore 8-bit machines for example, the controller was part of the disk drive. Also on other systems, but...

    To be honest, I don't think you get anywhere with your floppy issue without removing that SRAM expansion and try it with ordinary DRAM. I saw many people searching for such errors for weeks and...

    As for legality, your are, strictly speaking, not allowed to sell the real CD either. Beta software is confidential and even MSDN discs with ordinary builds can not be sold. But who cares about...

    Same here. I have two large MSDN boxes full of every OS from DOS to Windows 2000. Every version, every language, DDKs, SDKs, and what not. Wanted to toss them many times, yet they are still around...
  11. Of course not, because of the high resolution and...

    Of course not, because of the high resolution and b/w anyway, which makes no sense having color burst enabled.

    But you say yourself that for all other modes, there's BIOS support already, so I...

    A BIOS mode? It's not a different mode. The artifact colors work in any of the standard modes, even in 640x200x1 when toggeling the "color burst disable" bit.

    My comment would be to compare prices to other 5150 sold on ebay, because $850 for a non-working, used 5150 with a 3rd-party monitor is insane. Look at listing 402623545489 for example. That one was...

    Seems you are right. After correcting the typo made by the guy who sold it (it's MACROTRONICS, not MICROTRONICS), I was able to find infos about it as well. Still not much off. It's more or less for...

    If you have a port free on your normal IDE controller card then yes, you can connect the CD-ROM drive there.

    For CD audio, you connect the analog audio connector to the sound card. Never connect...

    Yes, it's a low-cost TNC for packet radio. Bandwidth is most likely 1200 baud, given its age and that it's for 8-bit computers.

    That's a modem which uses citizens band radio instead of the phone line. That's something still in use today.

    Certainly intended on the Apple II.

    Not sure about CGA. I would say it was intended there as well, otherwise they would have just made the composite signal b/w from the outset, which would have...

    The CT1750 has *no* IDE connector. Mitsumi, Panasonic, and Sony are all proprietary connectors from back then for early single- and double-speed drives. Do not connect any IDE device there, it may...
  20. Err... what? DOS talks to the BIOS and the BIOS...

    Err... what? DOS talks to the BIOS and the BIOS would do LBA when talking to the hard disk - or CF card in that case. DOS does not access the hard disk directly and doesn't care whether the BIOS uses...

    CHS values of the CF card shouldn't matter on a P166. This was way into the era of LBA. More likely that there is no valid MBR on the card.

    I second that repairing the floppy drive is the probably...

    You don't really need a video for that. Set your multi- or ohm-meter to ohm/resistance measurement, connect the black probe to GND on the mainboard's power connector and then just use the red probe...

    The search sucks, just like in most forums. Just use Google with a query like:

    I own a NX Pro 16 as well but not using it. I never understood why a sound card having Covox and DSS support is of any use when it is Sound Blaster-compatible anyway. There are less games supporting...
  25. Did you set up both drives correctly in the BIOS?...

    Did you set up both drives correctly in the BIOS? If so, perhaps you just swapped the CHS values accidentally.

    Did you ensure that both drives work when connected as the only drive on the...
