I assembled this wunderwaffe, warm and lamp P60 SX948 on Chaintech 586IPI

PCI interrupts are set by jumpers. With speeds, everything is not bad, although the brain stubbornly refuses to admit that this machine is older than Sis496/x5-133.

(x5-133 showed 49 parrots versus 45 here, but the memory is faster here).

It does not officially support EDO, although it started up with EDO plates when it saw half the volume.
The NCR 3.04 firmware is built into the BIOS, it works with the biosless NCR810, although it greatly upsets the speeds.
But with the rest of the seam controllers:
2940UW when first turned on, it initializes normally, but on boot (with IDE) everything freezes (trying to boot from SCSI?)
after a soft reset, the bios is not initialized, but dos is loaded (from the IDE).
2940U2W is not even initialized.
NCR875 bios-free is not seen by the mother bios, the driver says that the controller has found and freezes.
BT-950R displays its bios splash screen and also freezes.
I assume that the mother is not PCI2.0, but the first version. Right? Please tell us about your experience with PCI on this 430LX.

ps: In the BIOS application.

I have added the picture and bios in here:

There is a jumper manual and a quick settings guide, maybe those can help some.

The 430LX chipset supports PCI 2.0:

I think you need to check what IRQs are already taken and choose a free one for the slot with the SCSI card. Also, if putting a SCSI card with bios I think the "Onboard SCSI" must be set "Disabled".

Any more scores?

What tests do you want?

I'm interested in Doom shareware's demo3 with screenblocks 9(status bar + 1 green border).
Also Ultimate Doom's demo4(fullscreen) and DoomII's demo3 (fullscreen).
