ACATool v2.1 Softkick kick.a1200.46.143 SPEEDY IDE=NO issue happens with PCMCIA Friendly=YES or NO
First is trying to launch WHDload titles with a large Preload. EG WORMS AGA
Loading proceeds, fast ram goes down but then chip ram starts to go down and loading stops, yet there is approx 3 MB FAST RAM not used but only 66K Chip left.
Its as if the system doesn't know about ram after 8MB Fast ?
Coping files to RAM:
WB Shows 1.8MB FREE CHIP / 10MB OTHER MEM
Copy a 1.3MB file to ram then rename, continue and once there is roughly 2-3 MB left fast ram the system goes into a recoverable Alert.
Other problem is that the ACA1211 will boot from 3.1 rom, then soft kick 3.1.4 rom file OK
However,If there is a netgear FA411 card in the PCMCIA after the soft kick of 3.1.4 rom it wont boot and sits at the boing ball insert disk kickstart screen.
Removing the PCMCIA card and soft reboot then allows the machine then to boot.
Now the A1200 works fine with a PCMCIA card in it with 2 of my ACA1232's 40Mhz serials 5TUby RTUUN in it also. Also with an old DCE Typhoon MK2 . So the issues to me must be with the ACA1211
So I moved the ACA1211 to one of my other A1200's, this once has real 3.1.4 roms.
Won't boot if a netgear FA411 is in the PCMCIA slot, remove the netgear card and it boots.
Same happens with the low memory scenarios with this A1200 too, when you get to 2-3 MB free fast ram the recoverable alerts start.
Now on both A1200's you can hot plug the netgear once in 126.96.36.199 and then launch MIAMI DX but as soon as you attempt to tx/rx data, Recoverable alert.
P.S. tried 3 different power supplies including a Goliath one.
Tried everything I can think off before posting.
