5541 was released after 5550-S/T/V and it looks like PS/2 Mod. 53.
( I do not know the inside layout of Mod.53 ).
This machine can not take any Display Adapters other than Display Adapter
B-II for it's video sub-system.
Ref. Ver. 1.00 to Ver.1.36 are based on JDOS.
Ref.Ver higher than 1.4x are based on DOS/V.
Ver. 1.50 covers most of of all 386 models such as 5550-S/T/V,
5570-T/V, 5540-T, 5530-T.
Display Adapter B-2 was used for this
model. VGA chip is not provided on the planar. 2003.02.27
Noticed that a Display adapter seen in the
piture is not a B-II but more looks like V ( AVEC ).
Don't know if it is a B ( BVEC ) or any other kind of AVEC family.
( PS/55Z 5510-T which is very simmular to 5540 can be configured
with XGA /A. )
23F3270, 59F9046, 79F2566
