Recently I have bought a pair of thin clients to use exclusively for DOS one and for W95/98 the other.
The first PC is a HP T5000 (mine is the T5500 model with no USB 2.0, just 1.1) and I pretend to use exclusively for DOS with FreeDOS 1.2. I have choosed this OS instead MS-DOS because I don't know how to install through USB the Microsoft OS.
The SO is installed with no problems, I have used a SD to IDE adapter with a 32GB card as C: and with no more software installed I can play perfectly with VGA and PC Speaker options.
Now, when I start to install some drivers I'm spending too much hours and some days reading and trying 1000 ways to install the Bret Johnson's USB driver with no result.
Without any USB software I can use the keyboard, mouse and pendrives with no problems but I can not use another device as a MIDI USB cable for example, so I need to install the USB driver.
When I install USBUHCIL.COM and after push a key on my keyboard, can occur one thing, the system freezes and I have to restart the computer, the system freezes and show me an error message (error #12) and I have to restart the computer or, appears something like memory directions (scrolling up at speed of light) and I have to restart the computer.
I have tried with some different keyboards with the same result. I also have tried to do a batch file with:
USBUHCI / DisableLegacy, I0
The result is the same, the computer freezes. I have read that it can be for the KEYB that uses FreeDOS and is better to use de MS-DOS KEYB but, is not compatible so I can't use it.
Is there any other USB driver that I can use with FreeDOS?.
Thanks and regards.
