Default Re: Creating new NASCOM PolyDos magnetic media

Hi Neal ... We have success.

I automated the transfer and write to disk, using BASIC to get the track sized chunks (I have added a hardware handshake feature to my serial port) into a RAM buffer then wrote to disk as you suggested with a machine code subroutine.

After a couple of false starts, (a bad floppy disk and a program bug) transfer to disk completed.

I skipped step 3 and instead swapped the NAS-DOS roms for the POLYDOS3 boot rom I had blown earlier and booted up.

The "Boot which drive" prompt appeared,I pressed 0 and off it went.


If you would like a copy of the disk I'd be happy to pop one in the post for you.

Cheers
Andrew.
