Did that - echoed it out on serial line. But think about it - under
what circumstances I could write wrong data to the cyl/sec/head
registers that ANY other drive interprets correctly (I'm booting an OS
from other harddisks successfully)? If I would write wrong data into
those setup-registers I would also get errors from other devices,
My thinking was, that the drive does not interpret the data correctly.
1 Low-High-Switch not "clear" enough to the drive to accept the data
2 Low/High-Indicating voltage near the limits and the drive has slightly
broken stuff so if the voltage is neart the limit, it indicates
3 I'm to fast in asserting a signal and the disk can't pick it up that
2 -> i would have other errors as well e.g. sending identify command
also uses the same lines...
3 -> i already tried delays everywhere without success....
