It should be working with those boards. What's the exact error you're getting, can you please post a screenshot and when it happens ?
What DOS and other environment are you using? Try to use plain DOS (with XMS and HIGH) and minimize other drivers or programs.

thanx for quick answer
I'm using a well working dos 6.22 boot-floppy-disk
my config sys says:
DEVICE=a:\DOS\himem.sys /M:1 /V /TESTMEM:OFF
rem hoher buffer -> viel DOS im ASP
menuitem=full, full report
menuitem=short, short report
(this config,sys works with all modern boards)
first it take a very long time (5:30min) to pass the "reading data" sequenz
(normally with other boards is 1:30)
after my OK on the greeting dialog, a red dialog appears:
I'd checked different Controller
So you don't even get a chance to access the menu and no further window opens ?
Have you tried to run on other 486 machines where it would work, or does it always crash on 486's ?

Rehi again Martin,
yes, I can't access the menu, only quit is the option
so now I'd checked three other 486 boards,
one with FDD & HD controller on board -> run
one with only HD on board -> run too!
and an other with no controller onboard again -> faild
let me know, if you like to know what boars I'd tested
I'm afraid, HWiNFO for DOS has not been updated for a long time, so it's kind of phased out. I also don't have any such systems on which I could test it anymore, so it's hard for me to diagnose it.
Yes, please tell me which exact 486 CPUs have you tested - which ones work and which ones don't.
