Thanks for patches. Few days ago I've tested ROMs for NEC motherboards with PCem-X, and Award BIOS for FM530 motherboard (it's PB equivalent is PB810) was launched successful. As that motherboard is based on Intel Triton II (430VX) chipset, I think it can be added to PCem easily (with minor tweaks). More info: http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/pb/mb/810.htm

i believe it's not just minor tweaks, since theres a lot code changes in i430vx.
please don't compare PCem with PCem-X or it's unofficial forks.

Committed at rev 1031.

I think that this (or the seemingly identical 316SX) is the first PC I ever used.

For the record, this system has an OTI-067 onboard, uses an ACC Micro 2036 chipset and a UM82C862F SuperIO chip, none of which are currently emulated.

Rev 1035 adds basic ACC 2036 emulation.

Another significant Packard Bell "first" many have had is the Legend 40xCD model as that's a cheap Pentium 75 (without cache D: ) but with a overcompensating software bundle that many out there are seemingly familiar with (mainly for Spiderman Cartoon Maker and Journeyman Project). This particular computer model was popular in the US. I've never had one but lots of my friends did.

It's Hillary-based IIRC and has some kind of SB16-compatible Packard Bell-exclusive sound/modem/tuner combo card (which exists on many models from 94-96).

I'm assuming the recent Cirrus changes has to deal with these Packard computers as they've had similar cirrus cards

By the way, I don't know what's different between the Cirrus 5429/5430/5434 other than bus width and other stuff that should affect only speed, but the 5429 code worked fine with the BIOS files I've extracted from two of my cards (two 5434 and one 5430 - one of them is onboard a Intel Premiere/PCI on a Packard Bell Legend 100CD)

Packard Bell PB570 (the board used on the Legend 40xCD and friends) now emulated at rev 1055.

Does this motherboard have pci slots for other video cards? I'm only able to select the onboard video.

Currently you can't select any other video cards on systems with built-in video. It's one of the things I need to look at improving.

For the hell of it, I added the PB520r (socket 4 motherboard) at rev 1058.

I think that's enough Packard Bell for now.

With the commits in the past week, PCem now emulates every system (sans some vgas and sound cards) that I've had contact prior to ~1996, this is wonderful. The PB520r is working perfectly with my HDD & BIOS dumps.

EDIT: Just a quick note: most GD5434 were just 1MB with expansion slots for 2MB (the two of mine are 1MB, including the onboard the PB520r). PCem only allows 2MB and 4MB (the configurations with the faster memory accesses).

I must correct myself, I've only tested with Windows 95. The GD5434 Win3.1 drivers are not working, even with today's MMIO fixes. The attached screenshot is from the Win31 Program Manager with a menu open.

I am using the packard bell 570 machine and no matter what soundcard or use the rtl8029as network card I get an error about a pci irq conflict. There is no way to get any of these devices to work. Am I missing something?

Fixed in rev 1061.
