For the record
!db 0xf0000 works correctly on both machines, and the PFN entry is the same before and after the momentary mapping performed by
!db on both machines. Could the first one be a stupid kd -kl / livekd issue again?
Curious. I thought it could be that 0xf0 has never been mapped as opposed to mapped then unmapped, and for some reason left as MiNonCached and not MiNotMapped (and it may or may not return it to MiNotMapped when unmapping a cached area, but I don't know). I would have thought that this range would never have been mapped on ntoskrnl because it's not supposed to be using BIOS services.

This time it's 'Cached', and clearly contains garbage, so the MiNotMapped part of the question may be irrelevant, and should have perhaps been whats the difference between a garbage PFN entry and a zero intialised one?
