Creative sound card on a 286???

Is it possible to configure a Creative SB16 on a 286. I tried it, but when the drivers are suppose to be installed, it just "hangs". Everything I used was tested on a 386 and worked. Is there any way of making it work on a 286?


  • Older 286 machines had problems with certain DMA channels and SB cards. If your SB card has manual jumper options try a different DMA. If it is a newer SB that is supposed to do Plug-And-Play then your 286 BIOS may not support it.
