First of all, I can't get the installer to see an external cd-rom, works fine off the internal bus, I don't know what that's about.
On this machine, everything works swimmingly until its about to boot off the install cd, it says "this may take awhile" and then text across the desktop says "floating point exception," then it reboots, but it doesn't eject the floppy, and it goes through the whole process again, same error, reboots, until it does the same thing again.
I tried swapping ROMs, swapping RAM... same thing.
When making the start-up floppy, disk copy gives me an error, says there something wrong with the disk image, but then asks to insert another disk. I made 4 of them before realizing they were all bootable, but maybe the problem is there... odd if it would boot and go all through the initial stages before screwing up though.
I am using a fujitsu drive that I haven't set up in anyway yet, unsure of what drivers may be there, so I am not sure if the problem is there, but I have usually had amazing success with the A/UX installer being able to set up drives it has no business being able to set up, and I don't see what a drive has to do with floating point stuff. I was just experimenting to see if the installer would set it up, but I can't even get to that point, so I don't know.
Is this a bad board? What causes a floating point exception?
