Thank you for your explanation.

I was suggested by another user to open a ticket on the bug tracker of ecomstation.

He said that the problem could be the kernel. I get the TRAP after the white box appears on the upper left corner.

After having inserted the bootable Cd of eCS, I have chosen:

1) Boot from eComstation CD and then

2) Boot with menu for own values

Here, in eComstation Boot Options, I selected the AHCI SATA driver. I need it, because my mainboard has only Sata ports and no IDE ports.

3
This time I got a "TRAP 000d":

"The system detected an internal processing error at location ##0168:fff0f667 - 000f:e667.
60000, 9084

0c86090f
Internal revision 14.105_SMP

As I already said, I disableb the ACPI and I enabled the AHCI Sata driver.

4
After having removed the ACPI and chosen "continue boot", I got another TRAP. I suppose, that ACPI is too important for a multicore processor.

After having solved the hardware problems mentioned here: http://www.os2world.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,63/topic,5010.msg24249/topicseen,1/#new, I started the installation of eCS 2.1.

I choose "ACPI on modern hardware" and "Sata AHCI driver" from the setup menu.

In spite of that, the installation hangs on the eComstation 2 boot logo.

My hardware:

Mainboard: Asus Sabertooth 990 FX Socket AM3+
Processor: AMD Phenom II 960 X4 BE
8 Gbytes of Ram
Graphic Card: Ati Sapphire 4850

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

The situation is much better now.

The RAM should be installed in the 2nd and in the 4th slot instead of in the 1st and in the 2nd.

I installed 4 gbytes and the system works well. I would like to add the second bank (4 more gbytes)

The CPU is Phenom II X4 960

At the end the problem was the graphic card, either broken or not compatible with the mainboard. It was a ATI X700 which has been replaced through a ATI 4850.

The next step is installing eCS 2.1, so I will test the USB 3 ports, as requested by Blondeguy.

Happy Easter.


In what way is it not recognized? None of it is? Only some of it is?

If it is only some of the RAM recognized, could you let us know:
- how many CPUs or cores are in the machine
- how much total memory is installed
- how much memory is recognized
- what method of SMP the board and BIOS use
- if there are options in the BIOS to change the SMP/APIC/ACPI methods being used

Best,

Hardware / Panorama driver and wide resolutions

Could you please let me know which graphic cards are supported by the "widescreen activator driver" of Panorama?

I purchased a second hand ATI x700 video card, but it is not compatible with the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX mainboard.

Thank you in advance.

I really would like to test eCS 2.1 on my new computer! The processor is AMD Phenom II X4 960 T BE. There is a problem with the ram memory. In spite of being supported by the motherboard, it is not recognized and I can't boot.

Wow! If you would install eComStation, you could answer my question.

Can you use a USB 3.0 port with our current drivers?

A few days ago I purchased a new motherboard, ASUS Sabertooth 990Fx. It has 14 USB 2.0 ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports.
The USB 2.0 ports are still the majority.

The positive thing is that, after installing eCS 1.2, I migrated to eCS 2.1. I never got the same error message during the migration.
I installed eCS with the HPFS file system.

With Dfsee, I did the following:

From menu "Mode=Fdisk" => "MBR or EBR area operations" =>  "New MBR Code, erase tables"

In spite of that, I still got the same error message....

The funny thing is that I installed eCS 1.2 on the same hard drive!



Possible suggestion:
Same steps you've been taking, but beforehand, use dfSee to wipe anything on the disk - especially anything that even remotely looks like an MFT, MBR or partition table.

After the first installation phase, I openend the Config.sys and the Danis506 driver has the following structure:

BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD /!BIOS

And after the first reboot I got the same error message.


Quote
The hard disk is IDE.

An Italian user suggested to modify the settings of the DANIS506 driver.

That is the possible solution
What settings are you using with the DaniS506?  For a three year old unit I would think you don't need any - al least I don't on my three year old Acer.

It is not that eCS doesn't like the hard disk, it just doesn't see it because of the way the bios is showing it.

Assuming the hard disk is a SATA device and not the older PATA (IDE) then the bios might be configuring it as an AHCI device - which eCS can not work with - rather than an IDE device.  If that is the case you need to enter the bios setup and the HD from AHCI to IDE or Legacy, then you should be able to install eCS.

I tried the last installation on the empty hard drive.

I created a first primary partition for eCS, size 5 Gbyte. during the first reboot I got the same error message.

Perhaps eCS doesn't like the hard disk, but it is only a 100 Bgyte one.

I attach a picture taken from Win XP. It is a 100 Gbyte drive. I tried to install eCS at the beginning of the drive.
Now there is Win XP.
