Re: Configuring AMI 386dx bios for CD

I believe your driver is asking for a SCSI card in this case, especially that atapi wasn't a thing in 1993.

Re: [Bug] Microsoft Memphis build 1351 BSoD

Starting Windows 9x setup (be it prototypes or finals) from DOS is normal practice... And no, betas don't suck because they are buggy, they show you the evolution of what was in development, if you say that they suck, you'll likely say that finals suck and don't try them as well.

OS/2 and Mystique

Well, to start it fresh, on any machine (including the 430fx), this crashes when the drivers are active with the command "line close" being unimplemented, plus, the fact that there are many graphical glitches when using a stub line close implementation (obvious, I know, but that's for testing).

That "SCSI" boot sequence in the cmos means that the bios in question has got SCSI support only for a NCR/LSI 53c8xx adapter.

I had a S3 Virge and experienced exactly the same bug. It was a driver bug and yes, it was related to pointer shadow rendering.

If memory serves me right it was specific to a certain driver and reverting to an earlier one, fixed it.
Driver version of the earlier one? I'm curious.

Matrox WIP/Direct3D driver

Well, I know, WIP, so it's still early, but are the official and latest Matrox Mystique PCI (1064SG) drivers from 2000-2002 compatible on PCem under Win2000/XP? In the sense, here upon reaching the desktop, it fatals with Mystique busy in the blit.
Happens on any PCI-based machine of course.

OS/2 PM shell on NT 3.51

The OS/2 PM subsystem add-on on NT 3.51 doesn't load correctly, in the sense, that its driver is installed normally, running the PM shell causes a lockup in the dynarec, no such issues using interpreter.
This happens in anything that uses the dynarec, no matter what video card, sound, machine, etc.

Basically, if you change acc2168´s port 78 to return 0x20 instead of 0, a siren sound should be heard, but somehow with the new timer code, what you hear on the pb410 using interpreter is some garbage, but still works fine on dynarec, but its sound is distorted unless ISA_CYCLES(8) are subtracted on...
