The error sound is just the sound of a block banging (BLOCKS.WAV). You can experience it yourself via a Sound Blaster driver in PCem/86Box.

If you're using the Tandy OEM, that is not going to work on regular x86 machines since it was intended for Tandy 2000 machines. Get the non-Tandy OEMs; they will work on IBM systems as they were intended to.

False, the Tandy OEM works on 86Box, because it's not for the Tandy 1000 or 2000, rather, it was intended for Tandy multimedia PC compatibles from 1992.

If you're still looking for the non-Tandy stuff, feel free to DM me. Did some digging a couple months ago and managed to find all the ISO stuff on sites like archive.org.
