Default 7240 MS-DOS Compatibility Mode

Here is some info. In particular in references MS knowledge base article


"DEJ57" wrote in message
Anyone remember the steps to cure DOS compatibility mode operation?
One was to remove the line NOIDE from the regestry, as I recall. Other

step or
two? I believe there was...

I was under the impression this condition sometimes occurs when two IDE

don't get along. A 40GB HDD in my 7204 doesn't appear to be spooning with

Compaq 6x CDROM, or with my BIOS. I used an overlay to get by the 8GB

limit on
the 7240 but still have to F1 boot through a HDD error during boot. Since
that's true, that the 7240 doesn't really like the large drive and

overlay, it
may only run in DOS compatibility mode.

Opinions welcomed!
