OS = Dos 6.22 and WFW 3.11
The installation program I'm reffering to is the setup for the soundcard on the CD I got with it so it should be the original drivers from 1995.
Disabling the IDE-port on the card is on the list of things that I should do but I have to figure out how to do it first. As you say, at the moment its not a problem.
But at the moment it seems like the problem is solved, maybe not the most correct solution but it seems to work fine.
Windows 95A should run quite good on this computer, lots of memory and a "fast" hard drive makes big difference. I ran W95 on a 386DX/33 and 20mb ram for about two years before I got my first Penitum in 1998.
Another thing on the todo-list is to straighten out some pins on a 486 DX/2 66 Overdrive that I found in a box here. I will test it on another motherboard before I put it in the Prosignia since I'm not sure if its ok or not.
Next problem on the list... Drivers for the SCSI CD-ROM!
How did you use the driver CD for the soundcard, when you don't have mscdex loaded?
😁 😁 😁
I don't understand the comment about "but I have to figure out how to do it first" about disabling IDE on the soundcard. That's a 10 second job in the ECU, just set it to disabled.
You know how to enter ECU, don't you?
You are right, DX33 should be fine for early Windows 95, as you know I ran Windows 98SE on that machine, for that you need at least a 66MHz.
About drivers for the SCSI CD ROM.
I remember back in time when I installed Windows 98, I failed to find something, so I put an "external" Adaptec 2740 inside.
But I am sure, there is a solution for the onboard NCR based SCSI, too.
