Re: Packard Bell Legend 760 Supreme (PB410A)

I've been unable to find out much about the PB410A on tinternet. Could you photograph the motherboard, or at least list what chips are on it? If it's mainly chips that have already been implemented then it should be relatively easy to add.

Re: Large (> 8GB) hard drive support

If you're using the 'AMI 486 clone', that BIOS doesn't support LBA or CHS translation and therefore doesn't support anything beyond 504 MB, despite it displaying the correct number of cylinders in the BIOS setup.

Re: Large (> 8GB) hard drive support

I changed the New Hard Disc dialogue a few days ago, so you can enter the size in MB and the C/H/S settings will be calculated for you.

Re: v14 feature freeze end of Saturday 17th of March

Can we add support for SCSI hard disks that can have up to 255 heads instead of 16 heads and up the number of IDE/SCSI hard disks to eight due to a DOS/BIOS limitation? :p I've noticed that certain SCSI hard disks can have up to as much as 96 sectors per track, but it's obvious that DOS won't read ...

As usual I can provide configuration files etc. but so far it seems there isn't much interest in the oddities I keep stumbling on :)
I'm very interested! Your other reported problems haven't been addressed yet due to a backlog of other things to look at, not due to a lack of interest! :)

I can probably accommodate that, assuming you're happy using Disk Manager/EZ Drive/Max Blast/whatever to work around BIOS limitations.

v14 feature freeze end of Saturday 17th of March

I'm intending v14 to be a relatively small release, basically the features I intended for v13 didn't make it, the backlog of patches that built up, and bugfixes. I'm setting feature freeze for the end of Saturday the 17th of March, to be followed by a few weeks of bugfixing & code hardening. Any fea...

Re: Possible to get ALT+TAB trapped properly?

This was trapped in v12 and earlier, but got broken in the GUI rework in v13. I've just spent a couple of hours trying to get it working again, without success - it looks like wxWidgets is interfering with PCem's keyboard hook somehow, preventing ALT-TAB or any other relevant messages reaching it.

Re: [Patch] Toshiba T1200

This patch seems to fix the glitches for me. The first was a straightforward hardcoded RAM size (this should also stop the T1000 crashing if it's manually configured with a non-standard RAM size). The second was a BIOS feature to disable the built-in video chipset, so that an alternative video card...

Re: [Patch] Packard Bell Legend 300SX

Nope. Confusingly, PB570, 570, 590, 620, 630 and 650 are all basically the same Hillary design, with the same BIOS. PB600 is different, based on a VLSI chipset rather than an Intel one.

Re: [Patch] Xi8088 - GPL XT system bios

The BIOS you attached won't boot off floppy without XTIDE present. From what I can see, the INT 19H handler is broken - it fails to set ES correctly before reading the boot sector, so it goes to F000:7C00 instead of 0000:7C00.
