    Thanks very much, this was helpful.

    While The Last Byte was unable to do what I wanted -- it doesn't allow you to mix and match methods, so I couldn't do "adapter RAM" + "EMS4" -- I was able to...

    Actually, a lot of people did, but mostly because they used their systems for word processing or spreadsheets, and VGA allowed them to get bigger screens with clearer text.

    Now that's interesting, that did not work for me at all. Are we talking DOSMAX21? If not, what version are you using? Also, could you post your CONFIG.SYS?

    Cool! Now I have something new to try.

    QRAM attempts everything it can sense, and most of the command-line options are to tell it NOT to do something. If it detects supported shadow RAM chipsets, it will do the needful.

    I tried the booter version on my 5155 and got instant failure, when the same disk worked on a 5160 without issues. So not sure this is resolved, other than to say that BTR has issues on 5155 systems.

    Ah, found the problem. Those are the only DOSes I prefer to run. Maybe I'll try MS-DOS 6.22 as a test.

    VIDRAM from QRAM would work if I had a VGA card in the system. I can put RAM at A000 but...

    Sorry, I thought you were implying the creation of a board that used one mechanism to backfill and another mechanism to provide UMBs and EMS.
