Does the Atari 1040 ST require a boot disk, if so any idea where I could download it. I have a system that searchs the floppy drive on bootup, the nothing but a blank screen, any help appreciated, Thanks

The operating system is in ROM, so no it doesn't require a boot disk. The machine is waiting to see if there's something bootable in the drive and the timeout is rather long. Try powering the drive off and resetting the machine. The o/s should start much more quickly. If not, you may have a hardware problem.
