I assume I know what the problem is.
There are at least 4 specifc cards with specifc ROM version which needs
patching by the operating system to be supported.
Those cards and ROM codes are:
- Hyperdrive/Hyperbowl (A4071A) graphics card series:
ID = 0x2BCB015A 0x09A02587 (Version 8.04/8)
ID = 0x2BCB015A 0x09A02587 (Version 8.04/11)
- Thunder 1 VISUALIZE 48 card:
ID = 0x2F23E5FC 0x09A02587 (Version 8.05/9)
- Thunder 2 VISUALIZE 48 XP card:
ID = 0x2F8D570E 0x09A02587 (Version 8.05/12)
