UMBs etc. (Announce)

posted by w3a537(R) E-mail, Colorado Springs CO USA, 25.08.2016, 02:23

I used to log on here regularly.
I'm back for some expert DOS help.

First: I have been maintaining a DOS system as far back as
1985 and updating it regularly. This time when I upgraded
and put MSDOS 8 in a partition on my I5 dual boot system I
found this hardware too new for UMBPCI. To get my UMB's back
I tried JEMM386 and JEMMEX.

When loading or installing either in config.sys they either
of them don't work instead just spraying the screen with
random characters forever.

JEMMEX loads ok from a COMMAND prompt but that is much too
late to load drivers high.

Does anyone know what I can do to get some UMBs back.

Second: For info I am a Windows Insider and have W10RS2 running
very fine on my I3,\.

Third: I and two other people are trying to help the REACTOS
people with a problem in their FREELOADER which bombs out on
say 20% of the new users who try to boot REACTOS from DVD.

Go to REACTOS.ORG SUPPORT FREELOADER QUESTION for a very interesting
(?#!) read. I am Cirrus One on their forum.
