Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

In continuation to the 486 at 180MHz - an exercise in practicality : LuckyStar LS-486E rev:D Highly integrated, cost reduced and even more compact version of the previous rev:C2 PCB. 2 RAM slots only, soldered on board 256Kb 15ns L2 cache chips. Late UMC BIOS that speaks EDO and is different than …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Note that I have the MB-8433UU C -A which has the UM8886 A F rather than BF, but they seem similar. One difference is with this board, there is no option to control the PIO mode from the BIOS. There is only UM8673.SYS, as well as a small program I wrote to access the drives directly and switch to …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I was about to point you to the provided video in my previous post but noticed that the link was broken. Fixed it. Take a look. All answers of your questions are there. Notice the 5V line to the Peltier. What PCI divisor are you using? 1:1 Are you using 2-1-1-1 for the L2 at 60 MHz FSB? If so, what …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Been thinking for a while to examine the 486 space above the common 160MHz ... and finally getting to it. In this first round will operate under the slogan: 486 at 180MHz - an exercise in practicality . Some of the late AMD 133MHz rated CPUs are capable of reaching 180, or even 200 MHz frequencies …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I did a bit more testing with the onboard IDE port on the Biostar board. As it turns out, it is detecting my 32 GB Sandisk card properly. The "P014" it reports for the size is truncated. I guess they only left space for 4 digits. "P014" = "32014" megabytes. I'm still confused as to when a software …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

The Multiprocessing kernel thing happened on the i430TX as well, but at least the OS installed, just couldn't boot. I don't recall ever having this issue and I've setup NT4 at least a hundred times. The version of NT4 I'm using is the one which came with my Dell 410 Workstation. I think it is SP1. …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

UMC driver for NT3.5 crashes NT4 hard if the OS is on a partition inside a CF attached to Promise controller. There is no crash if the CF card is attached to the on-board UMC controller, but then performance is as reported before. In fact - there is no indication anywhere inside NT4 that the driver …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

What's the difference between "Standard PC" and "Standard PC with C-step i486"? EDIT1: I ultimately put the CF card into my i430tx system and installed NT4. While still in the 430tx system, I rebooted after NT4 installed, but NT4 wouldn't boot. It hangs at the point where it should just get started …
