Thank you so much for this. I've been collecting old drivers from CDs I had laying around, as well as some assorted ftp sites I would find, and created my own a couple of months ago.

If desired, feel free to leech (it's on my signature) - I've already added a couple of PDFs I got from your site.

Best regards to @ll!

edit: found a picture and it has no BIOS (not good for HD's), jumpers for IRQ and Port Address so is closer to a DTC 3510

"Adaptec 151x/AIC-6X60 Compatible" so should use Aspi2dos.sys

What do you know, ASP2DOS.sys was exactly the correct driver for it. No idea why I couldn't get it working the first time, but on rebuilding my K6-400 and modifying the Windows 98 boot disk to specify IRQ and I/O Port, it works perfectly!

Seems to be working fine for me right now.

Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣 Second computer a 286 12Mhz with real IDE drive ! After that came 386, 486, Pentium, P.Pro and everything after....

I keep finding latest drivers for windows 9x that are uncertified so I'd like to ask for certified ones even if they're not the latest 😀
Perhaps asserted in branches certified / non certified because sometimes microsoft signed is best even if the lates uncertified is more modern.

MS didn't require certification back then so a lot of drivers are not certified.
Why pay to have the drivers certified by MS if it isn't required?

vista and 7 signed drivers work better with my stuff signed and I like .cat 's

Win9x is not Vista or 7.

That's a double edged sword, IMHO .

On the hand, signed WHQL drivers have had some testing/validating done by Microsoft. How involved the testing was and how worthwhile the rubber stamp was, especially at the time, is debatable, IMHO .

On the other hand, newer Unsigned non-WHQL drivers may well have features and/or bugfixes that never made into an "official" WHQL release, but may have glaring bugs that would have been detected during the WHQL process .
