New MB, is it possible to split single PS/2 to KB+mouse? (Users)

posted by RayeR(R) Homepage, CZ, 03.11.2015, 14:31

I got DDR3 module to run the MB and tried how the PS/2 port works. I used USB bootdisk with freeDOS and ctmouse. When I boot with KB plugged it worked as expected. So I put ctmouse and DN to autoexec, plug mouse to PS/2 and reboot. Mouse worked too. What's interesting, when I swap mouse by KB during dos session the KB was properly initialized and worked without reboot. When I swap back to mouse it didn't work, probably would need ctmouse run again... So it seems there some swithing logic that is activated whenever something is plugged in even on runtime not only boot up.
Now I plan to connect mouse to superIO directly and see what will happen...

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
