USB support under DOS on intel 6-series chipstet? (Users)

posted by RayeR(R) Homepage, CZ, 19.11.2015, 11:46

I found that my favourite USBASPI.SYS from Panasonic doesn't longer work on new MB with P67 chipset. The difference seems to be that P67 is pure USB 2.0 system with EHCI only compared to ICH7 that exposed also UHCI. USBASPI.SYS already supports EHCI but it failed to detect USB targets. It finds just hubs, nothing else. Seems that hub makes a firewall :-D that cannot be passed. I tested only backpanel USB ports but probably it's screwed on all ports.
It reports:

I also tried USBMASS/386 and Iomega ASPIEHCI.SYS but without any success. Is there any working solution for newer chipsets? Bret, didn't you planned EHCI driver? :) BTW what about AMD, did they dropped UHCI too? This suxx. But BIOS USB disk support seems to work well and I never used other USB device under DOS so it's not big problem for me. But for future we would need some EHCI/XHCI solution...

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
