I'm trying to configure a Deskpro 386 config for the moment but i'm running into 3 issues:
1. built in VGA bios isn't working at all and i can't track down a generic VGA bios that will work in it's place (in the meantime i'm using a ET4000 bios which is displaying things).
2. i'm trying to confirm the deskpro bioses aren't corrupted (ODD U13 CRC is 791A1C78, EVEN U11 CRC is A9734A87, CRC's taken from 7zip) or wrongly named (i named the odd/even files as listed here). because otherwise trying to get hold of U15 if "U13" here isn't actually U15 has been near impossible.
3. when i try DOS 3.3 of any sort it instantly reboots.
are some of these issues in trying to source either bios roms and/or disk images or is this me being dumb?
also: is there any way to speed up the memory count on booting? I'm primarily setting this up not for my PC in the end but for my vita. but until i can even get this booting and running okay on PC, i can't do anything on vita.
EDIT 1: i've been working on things. turns out i needed an earlier compaq diag disk but the readability of some disks is still questionable at the moment, even with a dos 6.22 boot disk that i know works in Virtualbox and PCem. and trying both ibm and cirrus logic VGA bioses fails. do i need to track down a compaq vga bios?
