Video BIOS messages not showing up on startup before BIOS POST screen

Post by grommit2007 » Sun 14 Apr, 2019 11:20 pm

I have noticed that in PCem versions before 13, (up to PCem v12) if a graphics card had a startup message in its ROM, it would appear for a few seconds before the motherboard BIOS POST screen appears. From PCem v13 onwards, the graphics card startup messages in its ROM still appear, but they appear for seemingly less than a milisecond (or not at all depending on the selected motherboard or graphics card).

Is there a possible cause for this?

With the released version of v14, AMI winbios and Trident TVGA, I see the trident message during two seconds, so it seems there's something more in your setup that could be causing this misbehaviour. (video speed is set to default)
