Re: Trying to fix a faulty DTK Pim-Turbo "8MHz Turbo Board" Rev-5 with Siemens SAB8088-2-P 8088 CPU + 640KB RAM

It should just work. The controller doesn't need to be jumpered to DD. It's just that the XT wont be able to use the HD data rate used by 1.44MB disks. If you read a 720KB disk on an AT, the controller is behaving as it would on an XT. All floppy controllers have no idea what you have connected to …

You mention you stuck an AT keyboard in it. It's an XT so needs an XT keyboard. Check if your keyboard has an XT switch on the bottom of it. You'll get nothing out of an XT with an AT keyboard. No idea what the beep codes mean, could be keyboard, could be RAM. The few DTK BIOS board I've dealt with …

Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

I'm a bit confused by this long thread. so forgive me if i have missed a few things. The target is win 98 compatibility. So we are excluding those very old cpu-timed games that only run on an XT. And we are excluding games from the XP era that don't support 98. So we are left with (broadly) 2 types …
