  1. PCI\VEN_10B7&DEV_1700&SUBSYS_002010B7&REV_10 If is this list right: http://pciids.sourceforge.net/v2.2/pci.ids 1700 3c940 10/100/1000Base-T [Marvell] 1043 80eb A7V600/P4P800/K8V motherboard 10b7 0010 3C940 Gigabit LOM Ethernet Adapter 10b7 0020 3C941 Gigabit LOM Ethernet Adapter // Its this one 147b 1407 KV8-MAX3 motherboard
  2. Hello, im trying to find 3C2000-T Gigabit NIC Win98 driver, i tried few drivers from Drivers Guide, but everytime i point system to INF files list of adapters is empty, i tried to install 3com drivers package, but without success, in Windows XP and 7 card is working fine. Best Installation package - 2000_cd_10.exe, which looking promising, others which i have found had only XP+ and Win2k drivers.. I attached INFS file from package, which is looking most promising, but this is not working. EL2000x.inf
  3. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    i Just tested with original - second board same error.
  4. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    This same error on second board during installation Required line not found in INF
  5. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    Thanks, im on work trip so give me 2 days, or perhaps someone with same NIC, could test it.
  6. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    I on other location so i have to use other MB with same Intel 218-V controller, device ID is now: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A1&SUBSYS_78851462&REV_05 With this board its not working. When i point Device manager to folder with driver, driver is installing, but device name is work, i press install anyway (not signed driver) and after installation there is error, that searched line was not found in the inf file.
  7. Research on AM3+ board and chipsets: Resume

    Because X800 arrived i tested, dual stunt with it and its working fine. Windows XP, Windows 7 even Linux with Geforce 220GT. I have tried to overcome necessity of changing monitor input (my old 4:3 doesnt have input autoswitching) by using DVI to HDMI cables HDMI switch, but is not working, second thing i discovered that is better to have both monitors inputs connected right from both, i have tried reconnect just 1 cable after boot to right card, i dont saying that is not working, but i at least had some issues with it. Forcing primary gpu slot in HP bios is working too, but its not necessary, but when i want to bruteforce, quick solution, its working.
  8. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    HardwareID is: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A1&SUBSYS_15A11849&REV_00 Error, i cant now reboot because im doing something else, but problem is simply that driver could be installed, but after reboot there is exclamation mark and network is not working, if im not working error message say something about, that device could be started.
  9. Seaching for Intel 218V XP 32bit driver

    If you are able to fix driver, yes i do.
  10. Research on AM3+ board and chipsets: Resume

    Ok i tested it without Bios primary GPU slot overide, its not working, same as on other machines, VGA save driver is running and i cant fix it. Here are pictures of working and non working machine, i would like to see same picture (in Unigine is name of used GPU, so no sayers will see) from AMD3 machine and not Gigabyte boards. NonWorking: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cz6jo1rp6y5jk7y/WIn7-GPU-setting-1SlotGeforce7950GTisPrimary.png?dl=0 Working: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4py08lme7lgdoro/WIn7-GPU-setting-2SlotGeforce1030GTisPrimary.png?dl=0
  11. Research on AM3+ board and chipsets: Resume

    Well i have managed to get Geforce7950GT + Geforce1030GT finally working on Gigabyte Z97 board, where i can force primary GPU slot in the BIOS, as far i know only Gigabyte and some HP workstation have such bios feature. I had to force Geforce7950GT to Standart VGA driver disable card and after that i could finally install Geforce 1030 GT driver from installer, otherwise i had to force installation from *.inf files.. when was Geforce 7950GT in the system, 1030GT installer always ended with errors, not drivers installed. I dont know, what will happen if i will set primary gpu back to slot 1 (i dont have a time, i want to backup Win7 installation first) and second problem is that during Windows 7 installation was Windows 7 bootloader installed on Windows 98 partition and its not booting for now, there is some bootsector backup, but i will need to find out how to restore it. Worst scenario is that it would be working only with manual bios switching and probably when i forgot to switch and boot wrong OS, i will have to reinstall drivers => PITA. Another good thing is that Dual stunt working on this system on Linux too - Mint 18.2, here i cant boot when i selected Geforce1030 as primary gpu and i can boot after Nouveau open driver was blacklisted, but still not 3D, so i had to download universal linux driver from Nvidia site, install it from terminal and after reboot, its working. I understand principles (Win98, XP are ok, in Win 7 or Win 10, i never saw "Basic VGA" device, so something in your description is missing, forced Standard PCI VGA driver nothign), but problem is that you saying that for you is working something which never worked for me on AMD970 board - i never get picture on second slot Geforce1030 card (never get Geforce 1030 driver working after reboot, always Code 43 error), i always had only VGA safe driver and 1280x1024 resolution and i did same things like with this Z97 board and there it is working, but only with forcing primary GPU slot in bios.. Otherwise i asked for very specific pictures, them would help a lot. I wouldnt be first thing forwhich you need non documented bios specific feature.. I had similar issue with SB Live! dos sound, non one machine it was working, second nothing same setting and here is some small notes in specific there, which is say something about IRQ or DMA mask something.. and its directed to some very technical Google group discussion post at the end of internet.. When im thinkting about this Z97 GB - GA-Z97P-D3 board also supports Crossfire (noSLI), my AMD970 dont have Crossfire and SLI, some Intel boards had something for display port switching it was named Lucid virtue.. You posted it into WinXP for Geforce 10xx cards request.. yeah there is same discussion, but topic is a bit different, there are special dual cards threads, even one mine with 3 posts..
  12. Ok you made me angry. I dont like that spend time to do it yourself, because ask is weakness attitude.. Perhaps i excepted that you post much better boot menu that i find after of 5 minutes of googling and you will you more knowledge that you did. Ok im stuck at 2 problems and i dont pretend that i fully understand it and i dont too look like clever guy, which dont need to ask.. 1) Not working dual GPU stunt, there is 1 guy which are saying that its working and he still dont posted advanced info / proof. 2) I had problem with modern machine with AMD 970 and Geforce 7, where rloew patches not working as they such. You should be grateful for people as me, because were press to make things better and more straightforward and really fixed, because we are dont shy to ask. If you thing that this attitude is mark of stupidy, you are maybe more stupid that i am..
  13. Not DOS section on main Forum site

    It should be at same level and other Windows section, its definitely at least so frequent and interesting as Windows Vista or Windows 8. There lots people which still care about Dos are ready to donate if there will find nice place to disscuss it, know when you searchs Dos you are getting Vogons site and when you quick check this forum, you see not Dos, you going elsewhere..
  14. I had right opposite request to dont edit too much, its 1 to 1, so i will post how i feel it, unless i will have got ban or something like that.
  15. Hello, bellow is link on nice Phils boot menu for Dos gaming setting, i wonder how to add option Windows98 and Win 98 safe mode into. I tried something, but it not worked it supposed to and thing there people had more knowledge about this and can do it in few minutes. http://www.philscomputerlab.com/ms-dos-starter-pack.html I dont mind, path problem, i know i have to change C:\DOS to C:\Windows and change MSCDEX patch etc..
