Hello, since some time I observe some trouble on my 386 machine (Olivetti M380XP9) when I boot with QEMM386 active. Maybe you can give me some idea what to change on the configuration. Currently QEMM runs with the Stealth:M option, but also the Stealth:F method has the same behaviour, but QEMM can not upload obout 44kB of drivers etc. to the UMB. Using MFT (Manifest from QEMM) I manually found UMB memory regions which I inclueded/excluded for optimisation. (Exclusion is for the adress range of the TIGA graphics card, I manually included those areas which previously have been shown as "unused" in MFT). Besides the TIGA card the machine has an Adaptec 1542A for SCSI drives and for the floppy controller. (Originally the M380XP9 has an ESDI WD-1007 controller for HDD and Floppy).
So my current problems with that config:
1. MS-DOS does not detect floppy disk change. As long as I change disks with the same capacity, example 720kB or 1.44MB, MS-DOS and Windows 3.11 always the same content. When I change 720 to 1.44 MB or vice versa, I get read error.
2. Some lowlevel floppy disk tools like ANADISK are crashing with a QEMM error.
When I change from QEMM to HIMEM.SYS (with or without EMM386) everything works just fine, but EMM 386 is not that effective in uploading all the drivers and TSR to UMB. Usually with QEMM I have 644532 bytes memory free.
Any ideas? Trying 386max instead?
