Hello

Background problem:
http://www.wimsbios.com/phpBB2/viewtopi ... ea860dfa95

I am using the ISA VGA and Multi I/O card to connect to floppy drive.

The message at boot up is:
****************************************************

Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0
Copyright (c) 1996, Award Software, Inc.

BIOS ROM checksum error

Detecting floppy drive A media...
INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER
INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER
INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

************************************************

I kept pressing enter, but it wouldn't boot on my boot floppy created with the batch file.

Initially it was different message.

************************************
Detecting floppy drive A media...
Drive A error. System halt
************************************

But I realised that I did not connect pin1 of FDD correctly. It was okay then, but stop short at System Disk call. It wouldn't boot from the floppy.

The light on the floppy drive is always on. Even when I press reset, it stays on. But it wouldn't go back to the screen anymore. It goes back to continuous beeps with pause between.

Please advise.
