Nice DOS Card madness!!

Here's my crappy site I am sort of working on http://members.tripod.com/threedeefx/index.htm , I'm hoping to be voiding more warranties in the future.

Have you figured out how to get to your BIOS settings on that card? Usually this would be accomplished by pressing Esc, F1 or F2 immediately after startup. This all depends on the BIOS (The old Zeneth used Ctrl-Alt-Home to get to it). Perhaps there are settings there that would allow reactivating the L2 Cache with those odd chips...

"Im hoping to void more warranties in the future".

Hahahahahahaahahaha !

Thats what its all about !

POwer to the mad scientists !

As for the DOS card stuff, you cant get to the BIOS, according to apple. I tried some key combos, but no go. I am pretty sure the BIOS doesnt recognize the CPUS (other than pentium and MMX) and as a result disables the L2 cache. I tried using several programs to activate the L2, bu they crash the machine instantly. Bummer.

I need BIOS info and how it interacts with the card.

I hope to have my second card done soon, but its been much tougher to remove the CPU for some reason....
