Re: Prime95

One more thing... I'm a noob so forgive me if I'm missing something obvious... When I ran my custom mprime test (from a couple of posts back) I couldn't find any files or folders under /torture-test (even after a worker hit an error and stopped running). When I ran mprime from the default menu (not ...

Re: Prime95

Trying to get to the bottom of those kernel panics, I found out what was causing them: Linux (in most recent implementations, at least) simply ignores the BIOS settings regarding C-states, so if you have disabled those in BIOS, they will be enabled by the OS: http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/por...

Re: Prime95

Yeah, you make a good point, it's better to keep this simple and without disk support. Thanks for consoleblank=0 , it works fine and IMO it should definitely be there by default. So for anyone stumbling upon this thread, I found that this works as a simple custom entry for quick testing with P95: LA...

Re: Prime95

Try finding the results.txt in /tmp/torture-test/torture.* for any mprime log message. That file would be stored in RAM for as long as the program is running, right? I'd be more interested in a log file that is permanently saved (to the bootable USB). Especially seeing how on error you might get a ...

Re: Prime95

Thanks Explorer09. I'm trying this in a VM now. I was able to get to the Prime95 menu by typing /opt/mprime/mprime27 and from there I could select the options (which stress test, how many CPUs...). Now I'm trying to create a custom P95 entry that would show in "User-defined" in UBCD. I added this to...

Hi, i'm trying to start the WinXP installation with he builtin UBCD Freedos (Based on NwDsk V3.40) from an USB HDD.
If i boot with the default memory manager (UMBPCI), cd to i386 and start winnt.exe i get an insufficient memory error.
Booting with JEMM386 could not load the USB mass storage driver.

Re: LBAcache / STAK nest error

OK. I managed to work around this problem. Fixed ubcd/images/fdubcd.img.gz by - gunzip the file - loopback mount the floppy on linux - delete BIN/lbacache.cab - unmount - re-gzip - replace fsubcd.img.gz with the new version The such patched ubcd now works fine on the formerly problematic laptops. Ha...

LBAcache / STAK nest error

I'm having a problem with UBCD running off an USB stick. It works fine on all the Desktops around, but on both the IBM/Lenovo T61 and X61 series the freedos disk fails in an interesting way. It displays funny messages like "LBACACHE: in. STAK nest!? otherss=00d3" whenever it tries to access C: (i.e....

memtest86 is out memtest86+ is in

Memtest86 3.5 has a bug with systems that have 4GB of RAM or higher, it will crash within a couple seconds. I believe Memtest86 3.4 should be included as well for this reason. Okidoki. This bug is unacceptable IMHO :) Everybody is going to have more than 4 Go... ( Albeit I bought a "recent" game wh...

Can't find Parted Magic? Want to backup data from hard drive

Hi all, I'm trying to access data on a hard drive on a laptop that has blue screened so I can back it up to another external hard drive. From what I've read in the forums, "Parted Magic" seems to be the best program to do this? However, I can't seem to find Parted Magic in the program list when I bo...
