Yeah, in the case where it needs protection you absolutely don't want to be sourcing it from ISO (or, frankly, any of the input formats we currently support - those should be raw-raw).

What am I doing wrong here? I've set a floppy controller in the "slots" menu of MESS64, and the PC has two floppy drives in the BIOS and in the DIP switches ...

I'm pretty sure the system has a floppy by default, so adding one to the slots will cause a conflict like the BIOS is telling you.

I have the same symptoms without an explicitly set floppy controller in the slot menu.

yeah the 586 driver has done that for at least a month or two, never got anywhere with it (can't even get it to boot from a hdd created in the 486 driver with the same params specified)

This is why I haven't also done a test of installing Windows ME (needs 120mhz, and the 486 driver / bios won't go that high)

odd because the Cali Chase thing in MAME is a 586 :-)

The 586 driver definitely works with the same hard drive settings used on the 486. The drives in Windows 95 also don't run in compatibility mode like the 486, (at least on mine anyway) so Windows will run optimally (see second screenshot).





For those having trouble, try these steps.

- In the BIOS under Standard CMOS Setup, set all drives as AUTO, including the MODE

- In BIOS Features Setup, set the boot sequence to C ONLY (this is assuming your using your 486 drive that already has DOS or Windows on it)

- Under FILE MANAGER within MESS, load your chd hard drive file in to HARDISK (HARD1)

- Under DIPSWITCHS within MESS, set the first IDE CONFIGURATION (located under KEY CLICK) to Secondary, and the second IDE CONFIGURATION (located under BASE ADDRESS) to Primary, (so we're reversing them here)

- Under SLOT DEVICES, you should have ide:drive_0 and ide:drive_1 say HDD

That should be it, it's enough to get my 486 drive to work under the 586 driver.

Also, the floppy drive should be working, it does for me anyway, meaning the BIOS doesn't tell me it failed. Make sure under DIP SWITCHES you've got FLOPPY INSTALLED set to ON. The number of floppy drives defaults to 2 I believe, having 1 is fine of course. Within the BIOS under Standard CMOS Setup make sure you have Drive A : 1.44M, 3.5 in. If it still fails, set it Drive A to NONE. I can't get the floppy to work within Windows at the moment. Windows 95 will freeze when attempting to access it, with or without a disk inserted, this doesn't happen in Safe Mode though.

Thanks for the infos, the thing that does away with the floppy error is setting "Floppy drive seek" to disabled in the BIOS. I can't boot from the floppy images in the AT586 driver, though ... the disk images boot, but seem to have problems reading the disk because they invariably give me the "command interpreter not found" error.

Testing the CD-ROM code:

Super Street Fighter II Turbo (patched to v1.5)

Some video issues, locks up when going in-game. GUS sound effects don't work (although they do in the setup program), GUS music won't even initialise.

Microsoft Visual C++ v1.52c



Installs and runs fine. Not tested every function, but you can create, edit and build apps without a problem.

fwiw windows ME doesn't even seem to get past the 'Copying files for Windows Setup' stage, even if you give it the required memory and CPU
