In the period just before the NCR DMV driver got the modernized floppy driver based on the NEC �PD765, the driver showed the correct screen for "no floppy inserted, sitting here patiently"

It didn't boot, but it showed the correct screen. As I can no longer build the old revisions, I can't provide the revision, when this changed to a blank screen where nothing happens.

The recent change to the 765 code (r30943) provoked a change in the DMV behaviour: Now an error message that is related to the drive/disk configuration shows up.

It would be great if devs could look into this and maybe nudge the DMV along to boot.
