Possible bug with Fd1.2

Paolo Vincenzo Olivo

Hi, I'm up to report what I think could be a bug with the 1.2 version of Freedos installer. I burned a boot cd with the standard version of the Fd12 installer, I did it twice, to verify it wasn't a matter of corrupted burning, with two different disks and two different programs (img burn and cdburnerXP). I burned the cds at 2x speed and performed a final verification. Whenever I tried to install the OS, I always got a 'invalid OpCode' error at the beginning,  throughout my whole screen, which prevented me to go through and forced me to reboot. I press f8 to configure the installation manually and see what the problem might be. I discovered that skipping the himemx setting allowed me to continue the installation. Since I'm not such an experienced user and I did not know wheter skippng that would affect my future usage of expanded memory or not, I decided to install the 1.1 version to avoid any other bugs and it worked well.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that using the "Legacy" .iso
will avoid this (presumably BIOS incompatibility) problem:

If that doesn't help, please tell us.
