Building a DOS Box (EISA)Locked
It was a toss-up to post this here or in hardware, I think here might be best.
I’m building a 486 box for DOS and obviously I want it to “Be all it can be” with available hardware, meaning I have it already and don’t have to go out and buy stuff.
Hardware I have plenty of, but I need some softy stuff I can’t find. Specifically the EISA configuration program for the mobo, I have Googled myself silly trying to find an answer, I’m here now, so you can guess the result. 🙁
Hardware: An Everex Step 486 VL/e
Mobo Model num EV18210
The exact file I need to find is !evx1698.cfg
Note: The ‘new’ Everex company is not the same as the old one that went belly-up, and they do not have any joy for me.
BIOS manufacturer is of no help either, since this is an EISA problem.
Assuming I never find the file for d/l, and I doubt I will, can anyone recommend a good EISA configuration file writing program?
I have eisac141 already, but it’s kinda skimpy and I’ve never tried to use it for a motherboard, just adapter cards, and I’m going to ask here before I jump into that pot.
Also, although I am sure it’s !evx1698.cfg that I need, a program to pull up the board ID would be nice, and/or do a ROM dump for me as that would make writing the new .cfg file a bit easier.
I lost most of my old DOS tools a few years ago in a fire and this stuff is getting harder and harder to find on the net. I’m hoping somebody can point a few fingers for me.
