BIOS Mod/Dreamshell Questions...

Post by crimsonnight » Thu Sep 09, 2010 12:07 pm

Hi there, I'm an amateur with this stuff so I appreciate your time.

Just to start off, I'm working with a PAL dreamcast.
I noticed with the latest release of dreamshell that you can install it directly to the BIOS - there's a link to this page: http://www.dc-swat.ru/blog/hardware/16.html in brackets. After performing that hardware mod (is there an english guide on how to do that anywhere btw?) then what exactly do you have to do next to get dreamshell integrated into the BIOS?

My second question is, how do you get dreamshell to boot normally off a disc? I've burnt the latest version to a CD-R using (and the lowest speed setting on) imgburn but it just goes to the audio cd screen when I insert it; utopia doesn't seem to recognise it either...

that means you havnt burnt the disc properly
Dreamcast, it's still thinking.

Over-clocked : Dreamcast currently running at 240Mhz (switchable)

Internal VGA, extra cooling fans, disc activity LED, SD card reader done :-)

Dreamcast HD wanted
