    This should be on an isolated network since years ago! However, I know I've had to work on one recently and Windows Update still worked in the last week or two.

    Not trying to rain on any parade too hard, but in reality something like this has very little to no value today.

    When I worked for a Commodore/Amiga dealer in the early 90's, we "cleaned out" the back room of 100's of C64's, 1541's, Apple II's, etc. to the dumpster. Several pickup truck loads.

    Nobody wanted...

    This is a plague on those Mitsumi heads. It's the coils... they just go bad over time. I have a stack of about 10. 3-4 of them died just in the last couple years stored in climate-controller closet....

    I see that the machine *IS* in MAME, so you can see how it boots normally. For what that is worth... There is the diagnostic text and the setup program, before the flipping logo.

    Which leads me...

    I've seen two other Mindsets in my travels, and both did not work in the same way yours does not (black screen, occasional video nonsense). I think they just fail. I would definitely spend some...

    QD (quad) is poorly named if it's just an 80-track 5.25" DD drive like the TM100-4. It's still "double" density, just more tracks.

    I mean you could just use 40 tracks and store it as HD and get...

    Around here, you can't give them away. Over in Savannah they used to give away pallettes of the iMacs and eMacs for nothing if you came and got them (Savannah College of Art and Design). Of course,...

    I may be interested in one working one in good shape, depending on price and shipping costs.

    The bad rap was very poor FPU performance, which was starting to be a factor in games at the time.

    I remember that- it was never added to the mainstream release because it wasn't possible to make it 100% compatible due to the nature of how the burst protocol works.
    At least, that is what I...

    If I recall it does work but there is some way you have to put a ROM file on it or something to fool it into thinking it's a 1541, otherwise it tries to use it as a 1571 and fails because there is no...

    There was no NTSC 128D sold like this in the US or Canada, so this is some kind of production sample or development machine that was never mass produced. They shipped the metal DCR instead in North...

    High pitch noise is of course something vibrating quickly. Most likely is a coil somewhere, and usually they are dampened by a bit of glue. I would check the monitor board or power supply for them.

    Every Amiga 1000 owner got Kickstart/Workbench with the machine, and I'm pretty sure 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 were all free upgrades from the dealer. I don't think it was ever sold.

    Wanted: Fat Agnus (Any version)

    I have recently resurrected an old Rev5 A500. *all* of the RAM chips were bad... 12 were shorted, the other 4 were blown. I don't know what happened to it, but I suspect maybe someone used...

    I think the timing is funny sometimes even on the original keyboard. Some conditions cause it to stop working sometimes.

    I always hold CTRL-APPLE then press and hold reset for a moment, then let...

    Have you tried just pulling the KBRESET pin on the keyboard connector low to see if it resets? (or high, I haven't looked at schematics). I would do it with at least a 1K resistor to be safe.

    Sorry, yes that adapter will work. No, you can't boot from external without modifying the Amiga internally. You can pull up the drive select pins from one of the VIA chips and attach to a DPDT switch...
