The logic of polling is much simpler than waiting on an IRQ. Current disk controller chips almost always support two ATA buses per chip. As said above, there are also “temporary bad sectors”. About This site Joining Editing help Recent changes. If a driver ever reads the Regular Status port after sending a command to a drive, the “response” IRQ may never happen.

This gives a total of M sectors, or GB of addressable space. Then we make AX 0 because we want to iopport at the first colour in the palette, we output this to the port.

Current disk controller chips almost always support two ATA buses per chip. Selecting the Cylinder, Head, and Sector became an addressing mode. Reading a non-0xFF value is not cpm definitive. In the early days, the only intent of an IRQ was to inform the IRQ handler that the drive was ready to send or accept data. One or both of the drives on the bus may be in DMA mode, or have data block sizes other than bit values.


As always I suggest you print it and have it with you when you read any further. Usually the “N” can be placed after a jump to reverse the effect. Do you remember the string instructions? These devices will also write specific values to the IO ports, that ioporg be read.

If there is no device, then the Status value will be 0. Which means that a drive select may always happen just before a status read. A ikport will read this as an 0xFF byte — this is a condition called a “floating” bus. Views Read View source View history. If you don’t understand it, please be patient or read Denthor’s tutorials.

However, it may not always work!

Since the IRQ handler probably doesn’t know whether the operation was a DMA operation or not, you will probably end up checking the Busmaster Status byte after all IRQs if the bus is controlled by a Uoport controller at all — which it almost certainly is.

The controller board was plugged into a motherboard bus. You can simply verify this, before your next Device Select command — that the previously selected device cleared BSY and DRQ properly at command completion. So if iioport would SHR an 8-bit number, -5, 2 bits, the result is b. This is done because the base port may vary depending on the hardware in any given system.

Here are the possible combinations note, I haven’t discussed 32bit regs yet, but I do give them here. Otherwise, you will not know until your command times out. Mode 13h is x colours, mode 03h is standard 80×25 text mode 16 colours. It is always necessary to validate the LBAs that are passed into your driver, as truly belonging to the partition that is being accessed. Byte one is the upper left pixel, byte the upper right pixel.


Nowadays, the disk controller chips just ioporrt the electrical signals between the IO port bus and the IDE iopor, until the drive goes into some other mode than PIO. Now before I can give an example you need to know how to compare.

I’m using emu The code: This instruction has two operands. The actual control registers and IRQs for each bus can often be determined by enumerating the PCI bus, finding all the ooport controllers, and reading the information from each controller’s PCI Configuration Space.

When you send a command byte and iopotr RDY bit of the Status Registers is clear, you may have to wait technically up to 30 seconds for the drive to spin up, before DRQ sets.

DIV – Unsigned Divide. A SATA device will report 0x3c, and 0xc3 instead. Email Required, but never shown. What we want is output a string of 0 and 1 to the screen.
