Hi guys !
I hope everyone is fine.
I got my hands on a "tiny" Pentium4 system with of course no DOS soundcard integrated but a common and useless for me AC97 soundchip :

Still the system is nice to play old windows games and i wanted to add a DOS compatible PCI soundcard like an ESS Solo-1, Yamaha YMF744 or even an ALS 4000.
But no luck, nothing works. Can't get the Yamaha setupds to work, the Solo-1 is not recognized, and the ALS4000 seems to be working and initializing nicely (with a A220 I7 D1 T6 etc setting) but give me nice FM music but no PCM sound at all. First time i see this.
I believe the "strange" ATI chipset used here might be the cause, but does someone got the same problems as me ? Do i have to totally forgot a DOS sound compatible PCI card in this machine ?
