Hi, Just only being curious about this message from Ti-8-796: hub.c: connect-debounce failed, port 1 disabled. I got this message when booting from the TI floppies. Everything went fine. I could make full backup-image to external USB-2 HDD. I checked the image with TI: OK. I did a test: I restored the image and tested with two file integrity checkers: 1- NIS File Check on partition D checking several thousands of files with strong HASH: all OK (see the archived forum at the bottom of the forum for this checker); 2- ADinf32 Pro on C, checking ALL files; saved its previous log; it was as usual run just before making the backup; rebooted etc and run ADinf32 Pro. Nothing unusual was found (meaning: for example of course the newer NIS File Check databases were found, the saved last log of ADinf32 Pro was found, IEClean took care of INDEX.dat etc). So, as I said, absolutely nothing unusual was found. (Note: in the past I compared also the Registry before and after; I didn't do that this time). So, only for my curiosity: What does that message from TI means? Many thanks in advance !
