Report: ArcaOS on Panasonic Toughbook CF-M34 MK1
« on: November 24, 2019, 10:03:27 pm »
Cloned the installation onto that notebook, booted and then this happens... each time:

-------------------------------------------

Code: [Select]
The system detected an internal error at location ##0158:95FC - 000D:95FC.
60003, 6009

0786066a
Internal revision 14.200_W4

The system is stopped. Record all of the above information and contact your service representative.
-------------------------------------------

Why is this? Anybody know what this means?

The notebook has a Celeron 300 CPU and is equipped with 128 MB RAM.
I suppose the reason is a missing processor command set??

Reason for my assumption: The image recovered well on another notebook (Natcomp something (generic)) from the same age, which has a regular Pentium III.

Any ideas?

Solved!

The above STOP message means: You have selected AHCI & ACPI on an old machine.

Now I FINALLY have a working solution:

1) I`ve finally found the time to set up a new ArcaOS 5.0.4EN on VirtualBox. On install select the installer boot option ¨öld machine¨
2) then cloned the thing with Norton Ghost 6 (bootable floppy, since the notebook can only boot from A: or C:) - Norton Ghost parameter ¨ghost -slpit=85¨
3) loaded the Iomega ZIP100 driver (from floppy) and then cloned all data from local (virtual) HDD to ZIP100 disks
4) booted up the notebook
5) booted from Norton Ghost 6 boot floppy
6) loaded ZIP100 parallel port drive
7) started up Ghost6 from floppy
8) reloaded all the images onto the notebook hard drive
9 reboot.. and IT WORKS! :D

ArcAOS 5.0.4 booting and running excellently fine with 192 MB RAM 300 MHz Celeron.. : )
PCMCIA slot is Texas Instruments, network card is a PCMCIA card, 3Com Fast Ethernet III.. needs to be installed manually.

And... as I know.. Martin always is looking for pci.exe output... :D
... I´ve included the listing as an attachment.

Everything working now.. but tis notebook also comes with touch screen ... next task will be to get that working, too. :D
*happy*

Hi Mathius, glad you found the solution to your issue. There's actually quite a few reasons for that error to pop up, ranging from wrong drivers to wrong partitioning, bad MBR and so on.

Thanks for sharing Mathias. I will put it on the Wiki.

Are all the components of the laptop working, Audio?, Video with Panomara or SNAP? .
Any trick on the config.sys for drivers?
Does it looks like the one on the picture? Whats does the antenna does? Wifi?

Regards

Have a look at my "Digitizer Support" web page. Support is a 3 step process: Access COM device, Develop REXX script, Send Mouse events.
It seems to me that your Panasonic Toughbook touch screen has been connected to com port 2 using a gunze AHL-71N Touch Panel Controller.
Try and run "comraw 2 9600" to get raw input data at 9600 baud into the 9600.raw file. Touch the screen for actual input. Use Ctrl+C to stop.
