The C2RAMLDR utility has been fixed too.

Yesterday I was testing a newly-built power supply for my Panasonic A1 MK2 MSX. I could not make Carnivore2 boot to DOS. It starts booting, then the screen turns white and the machine resets. Does anyone have the same problem?

I am sure you have tried different slots? Try inserting and taking the cartridge out a few times (with the power off of course) to clean the contacts.

It's not the matter of bad contact. Other cartridge's functionality works fine. Tried different slots, different configurations, extra RAM expansion in a different slot - no result.

Maybe you can check the voltage / amperage of the cartridge slot compared to other working MSX?

Ahh, FS-A1? I remember i had some problems with MFR and this computer while ago, but i don't remember what it was exactly (either i tried multirom or so, don't really remember), but it rebooted like that while other computers booted correctly. Though i sold this Panasonic while ago. I suppose (just a wild guess) that the issue relates to the special firmware included with this computer (that screen with apps etc).

Pencioner i remember someone mentioned having problems with mfr+sd on fs-a1 as well. Perhaps that model just doesn't like fpga multicarts?

Most of the games work correctly. But no DOS. Aleste2 can't be started either. LifeMars crashes during loading.

Ah, missed the fact that some games were OK... Life on Mars and Aleste 2 are disks converted to ROM, my guess here is that there's something unusual in the Panasonic slots configurations that causes the dsk2rom routines to crash? Best solution is maybe to fix these routines in dsk2rom.

You can also try to launch the ROM images in openMSX with the same Panasonic configuration and see if that works?

Seems the same problem with the schedule firmware with Sony computers. In the wiki, explains that the firmware, can be disabled using DEL key, but if you use a CF/IDE sunrise interface, this key disables the partitions, and tells the use of another sunrise rom, that changes DEL by STOP for disable the partition.
I don't know if the nextor rom uses DEL key, but in sony computers, the disable firmware keys don't works, and the only solution is disable the firmware chip by hardware, or extract the chip from the main board.
