Re: Running NT 3.51 on modern hardware (Ryzen 3900x)

in Milliways
Don't know if anyone has experience with UniATA about this: How to reorder drive letters as defined by BIOS "Hard disk drives" order? From my current tests it seems UniATA (or perhaps FAT32-enabled fastfat) does not honor BIOS hard disk order and would instead assign drive letters by physical port …

Re: A strange partition table problem with MS-DOS...

in DOS
Okay, so Dos doesn't need the full disk... Have you looked at grub4dos? I haven't used grub in many, many years, but my understanding is that it can chainload Dos (and other operating systems) from within an existing partition or image file. ... I'm already using it. It saved a lot of hassle I'm …

Re: A strange partition table problem with MS-DOS...

in DOS
What's the actual use case for a 2tb drive/volume/partition for Dos/Win95|98|ME? The system runs a wide variety of systems for all kinds of purposes. I'm not using the whole 2TB for DOS. Dos7.1/8 support 2TB single partition Fat32 drive (and Win98se/Winme but you need to used patched ESDI_506.PDR …

Re: A strange partition table problem with MS-DOS...

What is the size of HDD? The disk in question is very large (2TB), and is used for data, not booting. That's the practical maximum I could use on those relatively old systems... A long time ago I tried 3TB disks with XP using 2003's disk.sys which supported GPT, and the disk ended up badly …

A strange partition table problem with MS-DOS...

in DOS
I noticed a very odd partitioning problem that manifests with MS-DOS and maybe a few others. It feels like some kind of inconsistency with the partition table that's causing a second primary partition on one of the disks not correctly recognized while in MS-DOS. However, the partition in question is …

Re: Running NT 3.51 on modern hardware (Ryzen 3900x)

https://bearwindows.zcm.com.au/winnt351.htm#p5 That might be useful for some folks. They include FAT32 driver and LBA versions for 3.51. I know about that fastfat driver. I think there's only one such version for enabling FAT32 on NT 3.51. It's just that NT 3.51 itself doesn't appear to understand …

BTW you can easily slipstream ntfs.sys from NT4 SP6 into nt3.51 ISO. In fact there is an nt 3.51 w SP5 includd ISO that uses the WIn2K bootloader. Use WinISO and swap the ntfs.sys in the i386 folder. 3.51 will happily use the newer NTFS format zero issues. STOP! DON'T DO THAT. NT 3.51 lacks many …

Re: Running NT 3.51 on modern hardware (Ryzen 3900x)

in Milliways
A little maybe off-topic bug I found out about NT 3.51's disk capability. It seems NT 3.51 simply doesn't understand LBA extended partitions. As such, even with the FAT32-enabled fastfat, you cannot access any logical partition created inside such extended partitions. Primary partitions are fine. On …

Re: Has anyone tried ArcaOS for retro gaming?

Yes. So far I cannot get SBEMU to work with DOS. https://github.com/crazii/SBEMU back in the day you could passthrough access to DOS. I have since forgotten how. I never really tried OS/2's DOS so I'm not sure about the details, but I'm interested. I wonder if OS/2's DOS functionality is kind of …
