Good evening, Frode!

Tested Bridgeboard A2386 now. Installation of MS-DOS 6.22 works fine except one thing:
x86 IDE controller hardfile doesn't work anymore after very fresh install of DOS and after a complete emulator restart.

It either says if trying to boot from, that no boot sector is there. And if I try to boot from floppy DOS, fdisk recognizes the harddrive and capacity, but can't write on it. It seems to work only with very fresh created hardfile.

I double checked with WinUAE, it boots fine there from HDD.
Logs attached including A2386 BIOS settings (HDD is set to 41 (AUTO)). Shadowing enabled and both floppies set to 1,44MB.

EDIT: Strange, when I set geometry to 1024 cyls, 16 heads and 63 sectors and enable RDB mode, it starts to work. Also set that geometry manually in A2386 BIOS.
