    I V20'd my CP and added a FlashFloppy Gotek, and just ordered a Texelec keyboard overhaul set, so the ol' girl is starting to show signs of life. Oh, and it came home from the thrift store with an...

    I assume these are compatible with the built-in monitor. I'm tempted, though the listing's shipping cost of "varies" is disappointing, considering ebay offers simple tools for estimating shipping,...

    Let me know if you figure out how to open it for a good V20'ing and a Gotek.

    Yes, it types in both places at once. I will dig out the eprom programmer to test the 74 chips.

    Edit: I found a 6845 in a BBC micro. When I used it in the 8032 the result was the same as the factory 6545.

    For what it's worth, the repetition seems to start at precisely 256 character locations from start.

    I replaced the video ram, that doesn't seem to be the issue.

    That's one of the coolest looking computers. Is the mouse branded Amstrad?

    Ooh, bad timing. Is there any way to freeze a Kickstarter until after a global economic meltdown?

    The answer is in the names, one meant to emulate a II+, one a IIe. Please Kryoflux the boot disk and add it to Archive.org if you haven't already.

    It's set to s0, I tried s1 a few times and it almost instantly said "boot failure", and also there is no crossover on the cable, so I <think> drive 0 is correct. At east with s0 it takes a few...

    I note with some confusion the hand-written label on this rom next to the floppy controller and wonder if it is some sort of aftermarket mod, and what that signifies concerning 360K drive parameters...

    Note: I've tried DoubleTop's 360K drive parameters with no success. The standard drives are OKI gm3305's which are not head-stepping, so it is hard to rule out a motherboard fdc problem.

    I'm trying to boot this Osborne Executive with a Gotek + FlashFloppy. I've tried configs for Shugart and IBM, nothing happens. Does anyone know of a Osborne Exec working with a Gotek, proving that it...
