I'm having problems getting my NIC to boot off the ROM..
I have two SMC 1211TX NIC's (10/100 PCI)... (I'm using both for testing purposes)
I'm using an Am27C256-205DC EPROM..
I used "rom-o-matic" 5.0.4 to create a Binary Image..
The computer doesn't see the BOOT ROM.. It fails to boot.. (I configured the NIC to boot to ROM
and set the size to 32k) (I did the same on the other card)
I use "rom-o-matic" 5.0.4 to create a BOOT DISK and a DOS.COM file and they both work with both
cards... I don't understand why the ROM won't work..
I've successfully created a BOOT ROM using the same EPROM on a 3C509B ISA 10Mbs NIC.. It's just not
working for the SMC NIC's..
Can anyone provide me with some assistance? I'd greatly appreciate it..
