    Question 5160 clone & XT Turbo BIOS

    Hello, I have problem with XT Turbo BIOS 3.1. I chose to include Floppy and BASIC. It is two 32K ROM configuration. Floppy BIOS starts and detect two Floppy drives but after that there is only blinking "_". When I remove Floppy and BASIC the bechavior is the same (minus Floppy BIOS). Im suspecting that this is some problem with main XT Turbo BIOS configuration. I have one EPROM witch some old edition and it loads correctly but it not contain Floppy and BASIC unfortunatly.

    Just a blinking cursor could mean that the BIOS thinks it is dealing with another video system and only initialized the "second" one, in this case the one you are looking at. Please check your switch settings.

    Im using 8bit VGA card, switches 5 & 6 are set to OFF I tryed with both ON and 5 OFF and 6 ON but no luck. I done some testing and it works with versions up to 2.6. 3.0 and 3.1 are only blinking cursor. So I think that the problem is in some changes between 2.6 and 3.0 versions.
