Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

I'll need to look back at some of the guidance you gave me previously. Thank you. I just re-tested these instructions at https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1536#p1536 : almost everything works fine, except that ./cbfstool.sh for wgetting a minimal set of sources & building your own cbfstoo...

Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Good day, Andy! How are you doing? Hope you are in a great health and everything is going well in your life. Recently we've discovered that Lenovo G505S has bad IRQ routing in a coreboot BIOS, and found the way to fix it! Now I've re-tested your special 2019-08-09 0.84 floppy with a RAMdisk support ...

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

Fingers crossed, although my suspicions about your problem have returned to the IDE and/or SATA drivers. Good day Andy, sorry it took me so long to test your image and I'm late for your 0.85 release - have been checking this thread once in a while but worked too much at these new year holidays and ...

Yes, I am ready to test the new images. Wish you a Happy New Year ! :)

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

Sorry, I forgot to make the RAM disk image for you. But, this indicates that the APIC is needed in order to use this controller. The last thing to try, I guess, is to give you some kind of debug version that outputs about what's going on with the APIC. That's tricky though, with a floppy image. The...

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

link Sadly it can't boot to Visopsys as a virtual floppy ( have you also applied your workaround from https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=338#p1594 ? ). A bit later I'm going to try USB. Just in case, here's a new log - with a "Controller has no interrupt" message Detecting hardware: SA...

Small bump ;) How could I get more debug info for you?

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

I think I would look at the APIC interrupt driver code first, since that's new-ish, and maybe a bit less reliable, and could be responsible. If you go into the 'devices' program in Visopsys, does it seem to think you've got a supported APIC, or just an old PIC? Hi Andy, 'Devices' program isn't avai...

Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

Finally I got a new hard drive and tried to test it with your 2019-08-09 floppy from https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=338 . Compared to a previous boot log, a few new lines appeared: Detecting hardware: SATA disk controller Error::kernelSataAhciDriver.c:issueCommand(1404): Command fai...

Andy, this is excellent! I just put your new floppy to a coreboot BIOS of G505S laptop - and Visopsys is booting well :bow-yellow: :clap: Here is a new log: Detecting hardware: SATA disk controller Error::kernelSataAhciDriver.c:issueCommand(1404): Command failed - timeout Error::kernelSataAhciDriver...
