Hi,

i'm using a BEER IDE interface for my MSX (1+2) computers, but encountered a "problem" with my NMS 8280.

Plugged the interface in the first cartridge slot and i received the normal Beer IDE boot screen ... after that, the 8580 tries to load from disk drive A and i have to select "abort" to enter the prompt. It doesn't load the MSX Loader at the start. i always have to "abort" and type "BASIC C:CARCADOR.BAS" and it starts.

Connecting this interface in machines without floppy disk drive, this IDE interface assign to the system the letters A:, B:, C: and D :, instead on systems with disk drives, the partitions assignments are: C :, D:, E: and F:

So i created a AUTOEXEC.BAT with the following content ...

BASIC C:CARGADOR.BAS (The MSX-Loader)

... and put that one to the root of an empty disk in drive A and i thought, that would execute the loader to start automatically at startup ... but i doesn't work.

Any solutions for this one?

Thanks.

Tom

What do you mean with "it doesn't work"? What happens?

It only gets to the basic prompt and the loader won't start.

Did the BEER IDE ever work correctly, or is this the first time you tried it? What is there as a DOS installed on the medium which is in the BEER IDE, it could be a firmware problem as well, so the diskrom could be corrupted. To pinpoint the issue, more details are required for us to help out where we can Wink

But my first impression is a partition issue, boot record corrupt or something.

I am reading here more info on it

Well, i thought, that there are much details in my first post, but here we go again Wink :

NMS 8280 with BEER IDE:

1. Plugged the interface in the first cartridge slot and i received the normal Beer IDE boot screen
2. After that, the 8280 tries to load from disk drive A (as usual, 'cause an MSX with a disk drive always tries to access the floppy first) and i have to select "abort" to enter the prompt
3. I type BASIC C:CARCADOR.BAS, the MSX Loader menu starts and i can select a game

So everything is ok, but i want to load the Loader automatically at startup without typing BASIC C:CARCADOR.BAS

So i tried:

1. I formated a disk and created a AUTOEXEC.BAT with the following content ...
BASIC C:CARGADOR.BAS (The MSX-Loader)

... cause i thought, that will execute the Loader at the startup ... but it only gets to the basic prompt without starting the Loader menu.

Here are the contents of the CF.

I still think the reason the BEER IDE isn't drive A properly is because something is off, maybe read this thread as well. With other IDE interfaces, the CF becomes A drive and diskdrives B and C.

Well, i bought this interface from a gury, who wrote:

Quote:

Connecting this interface in machines without floppy disk drive, this IDE interface assign to the system the letters A:, B:, C: and D :, instead on systems with disk drives, the partitions assignments are: C :, D:, E: and F:

I really don't know, why my AUTOEXEC.BAT on a disk in drive A doesn't work. It should simply execute the loader on the CF.

BASIC C:CARGAGDOR.BAS

When i type this one at the prompt, it executes the loader, but the same line in an AUTOEXEC.BAT doesn't work ... strange. Maybe a problem with the disks bootsector.

Ok, i solved the problem. Formated a new disk and put the MSDOS.SYS, COMMAND.COM and my AUTOEXEC.BAT on this, and the CF Loader starts, when i start the NMS.
