2190--CXFFFF

Category: no classification
Flags: Undocumented function

INT 21 - PTS-DOS 6.51 & S/DOS 1.0 - DIRECT DISK READ

	AH = 90h
	CX = FFFFh (for partitions > 32 Mb)
	    DS:BX -> request block (see #04094)
	CX = sector count (for partitions < 32 Mb)
	    DX = starting sector number
	    DS:BX -> buffer
Return: CF set on error
	    AX error code
	CF clear on success
Notes:	This function is supported by Paragon Technology Systems S/DOS 1.0
	  (and most probably by PTS-DOS 6.51, maybe even earlier).
	To access big partitions (> 32 Mb), the CX != FFFFh is not allowed and
	  the buffer must always be used. Otherwise, the system will return
	  error code 0207h.
	It is currently unknown if this function is also supported by
	  PhysTechSoft PTS-DOS 6.60, 6.70, or 2000.
