Re: AN430TX/LT430TX Owners?

Interesting, I had thought there would be a bios option to disable the onboard VGA. One thing to note is that the version of the board with VGA has 1 fewer PCI slot than the version without VGA (presumably they wired up the Rage chip electrically to the "removed" PCI slot). I actually have the …

Re: Tell us about your 3DFX collection

All current model drives will do background garbage collection, and can use unwritten (unpartitioned) space for wear levelling and to …

Re: IBM Aptiva 2137 - IBM theme files found!

So I gave it a try… The startlogo.oem file you've included is identical to the one included with the Windows 95 OSR2. The "oemlogo" and "oeminfo" files need to go into C:\Windows\System, at least on Windows 95. https://www.kepstin.ca/dump/ibm-aptiva-screenshot.png Looks great, and the screensaver …
