I started messing with a Samsung Deskmaster 286/12 system, naturally the battery was dead so I was getting boot issues.
Replaced the battery and spent quite some time trying key combos to enter the BIOS - unsuccessfully.
Since it is a 1988 286 Phoenix BIOS my guess is that there is no rom-based setup - so instead I used the disk based one.
It worked, I adjusted date, time, hdd options, let it auto-configure the memory and at first glance all seemed ok:
(not sure why base memory is 639kb - changed it to 640 manually but made no difference)
So after a reboot I am still greeted with this screen:
I am out of ideas atm, do I need a special version of PHOENIX setup? A newer one? A Samsung-specific one?
Any ideas on what to try next are welcomed, thanks!
