AWE64 Value, incompatible drivers.

Postby haker120 » 2018-1-01 @ 19:50

I have AWE64 Value and I can't force DOS 7.1, I planned 6.22 but my original installer doesn't work anymore. How to install drivers and how? I've got message everything went well but files show load failed. I decided to install DOS because on win98 Voodoo shows graphical glitches and in DOS works well. Any suggestions please, this PC is starting to hurt my patience.

Do a step-by-step confirmation boot and show the device driver names and any resulting output when things try to load. Also, it's a PnP card, so you may need to install a DOS PnP manager (like Creative's CTCM/CTCU) to be able to configure the IRQ, I/O, and DMA settings.

Well, those files don't load at all, when I turn them on, dos message tells win95's configuration was changed and reboot is required and it doesn't work in result.

"Those files don't load at all" doesn't tell me as much as I'd like. Is it because of a "bad command or filename" or similar? F8, step-by-step confirmation should step you through CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT Need to see the path and filename, and the resulting output from that boot.

If it's when you "Restart in MS-DOS Mode" from Win9x, I'm not sure if F8 also works at that time, it's been a while since I've run Win9x.

No, I have only DOS 7.1 without windows 95/98, drivers install themselves but when system starts it shows it failed to load and diagnose.exe fails to load soundcard.

1. Tell us exactly which drivers you are installing (filename, where they are from)
2. Show us the error message (post a screenshot)
3. Be less ambiguous, since currently your posts are contradicting (your second post makes no sense if you are running pure DOS)

And tell us about the hardware. What system? Does it have a Plug&Play BIOS? Post/attach your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT.

I have progress, I've installed DOS 6.22 successfully. Drivers I've got from here http://support.creative.com/Downloads/welcome.aspx and I have sounds in games but I don't have music but I don't get red error saying that AWE32 wasn't detected. My system:
Processor: Pentium 200MMX
Mobo: ASUS TX97 - XE
Graphic 2D: S3 Trio 64 V+ 4MB
Graphic 3D: Voodoo Graphics 4MB
RAM: 128MB RAM
Sound: SoundBlaster AWE64 CT4500

Edit: Ok, everything works now, I even learned how to set up games but one thing is weird but I'll start new topic with it. Thanks for help!

Seems like all your problems are magically fixed without our help. Dare to tell us how you fixed it eventually?

no need to upload it, as creative website and vogons drivers have them all ;) there were different isos bundled with the cards, but others should of course work too

How did I fix it? Simply, I managed to install MS-DOS from CD (my original 3 diskettes are not fully working) and drivers from here, ISO just installed from Win3.11, in DOS drivers didn't want to install so I had to install win3.11 too. Just simple as that. I really appreciate help but while I'm waitimg for respond, I always try to fix it by myself,
Generaly MS-DOS 7.1 is not good for gaming, better works DOS mode in win98SE but I had to try to know that. XD

MS-DOS 7.1 CDs aren't real (or any other separate distribution). Only trust "DOS 7" as shipped with Windows 9x installations. You'll save so much trouble from avoiding secondhand alleged "rare version ms dos abandonware", who knows what cruft could be lurking within them.
