I've been testing the installation of Windows 2 with PCem, and I have two issues, but I don't know if they're my fault.
I'm using PCem 0.7, with Amstrad PC2086 BIOS (the BIOS are from the MESS set) using a virtual IDE XT controller with an "almost" ST225 (I've used the CHS configuration of an ST225 to create the disk). I've used six disk images from a user of that machine.
The installation went fine. I've used spanish keyboard, VGA video card and "built-in" mouse. The issues I have are:
- Windows splash screen shows a garbled screen. Not to worry, once Windows has started everything looks good.
- The vertical axis of the mouse is inverted. I move the mouse up, the cursor moves down. The horizontal axis works OK. It doesn't matter if I load MOUSE.COM or not.
May it be a wrong mouse configuration? If so, what kind of mouse is correct for those computers?
