Hi Tim,
what type of computer / motherboard are you using? What I see from your report
is that every second byte is scrambled. I remember in the early times of
PC-AT computers where ISA buses were the ones one could get and you had a ISA
Graphics card and it forced 8 Bit access within areas of the memory where you
intended to have 16 Bit accesses -> S?A?S?A? meaning SNAPSCAN, the even byte is
scrambled, the odd one is not.
Do you use any memory mapped peripherals in your ISA-system? Please check for
this! Your problem appears to me to be highly hardware related.
Maybe this helps ....
