Hi, >> Very interesting, is a common problem using compressed SMSQe Rom with >> normal HD ?
It isn't so much the fact that the ROMs are compressed, I just sped up the Qx0 boot time whilst I was at it. >> Could be this a value parametrized ? > > I just coded a (very quick) and (totally) dirty 5s delay loop in the > Q40 HD init code. The *proper* fix would require waiting in a loop > (that would timeout after 10s or so) for a HD to show up and report > as being ready on the IDE port(s).

I'll put this into the next version. Should the check be made on all 4 possible disks, or only on the one in target 0? >> Well I am curious to know what you did, can be this module published ? > > Patch attached.

I must have mislaid your previous fix, could you send it to me again? Wolfgang _______________________________________________ QL-Users Mailing List
