probs with memory detection, i386



Hello,

as Subj. says, i found one old pc and wanted to make of it m$-free comp.
Unfortunately OpenBSD install-floppy (from 2.3 release - floppy23.fs) it
detects only 12MB of 16MB existing. The other thing it dies with non-maskeble
interrupt when i type "machine regs"...

Maybe somebody has seen something like this or could help with the probs.
I so want to get this box working...

Thanks in advance.

Details.

-- Memoria...

This comp is 486DX5(?) 133MHz (AMD), 16MB (see note below), and 830MB IDE HD.
Memory is mixed: 2x4MB non-EDO SIMMs and 1 8MB EDO SIMM, placed in the first
three slots - 4, 8, 4. BIOS POST counts "16000 KB OK" when checking. May be
OpenBSD boot unproperly detects one 4MB SIMM and talks only about 12800 MB?

It looks like:

reading boot......
pc0 detected
com0 detected
com1 detected
using pc0 console
memory: 639K 12800K [A20 on]
disk: fd0 hd0*
bios: pci
>> OpenBSD BOOT 1.23
boot> machine memory
Region 0: type 1 at 0x0 for 639KB
Region 1: type 2 at 0x9fc00 for 1KB
Region 2: type 1 at 0x100000 for 12800KB
Region 3: type 2 at 0xfec00000 for 1024KB
Region 4: type 2 at 0xfee00000 for 1024KB
Region 5: type 2 at 0xffff0000 for 64KB
Low ram: 639KB  High ram: 12800KB
Total free memory: 13439KB

-- non-maskable interrupt

Well, it became any time i type "machine regs" and press enter. I tried about
3 times and all the times it was the same effect, with all the same numbers.
