Hi Ray,


Parados shouldn't matter because that's an upper ROM. The only way I know to detect the model is by looking at the lower (OS) ROM and looking for specific byte patterns. If you're using a ROM board that overrides the lower ROM, then that's normal it says that. I have special code for an M4 or a Dandanator to page the diagnostics ROM out, read the OS ROM, and then page the diagnostics back in. But on a regular ROM board or an EPROM, there's nothing I can do about it.


If you want to make sure, you can always run it from DSK and it should correctly detect all your standard ROMs.
