[Bug] MR 386DX clone is broken...

When you start it, you just get a black screen and strange beeps. This happens regardless of RAM size or selected graphics card.

I could not reproduce with build f05fbc5 as MR 386DX is working. Perhaps it's related to later changes.

It might have to do with all the CPU changes (task switching fixes) that were applied after that.

The MR 386DX clone is working okay. With the exception of the CPU changes, I can't seem to reproduce.

The only way I can seem to boot a black screen with strange beeps is with the TVGA card and i'm almost certain that itself is a "someone packed the wrong bios" issue and it's not a "regardless" "bug".

EDIT: Indeed that is the case. A proper TVGA8900 bios works and boots with video and without strange beeps
