I see that on some sites tos 1.2 (1.02) is listed as mega tos, so maybe this was just an upgrade from 1.0 to 1.02 on this, as it seems maybe this system might have shipped with 1.0.
Sysinfo will tell you PDQ just what is going on with TOS :)

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

At present I'm struggling to be able to program anything but Lattice 22V10C GALS. My TL866CS doesn't appear to support them, and right now I'm not able to re-program mine to be a TL866A, which does support Atmel 22V10C GALS. I'm a bit loath to wipe my Lattice, as the booster is working and stable @4...

Re: WANTED: Top Mobo Shield for 1040STF

I've mentioned on your other thread, but the shield isn't really necessary unless you want the machine to be "historically correct".

My STEs and at least half of my STs run without one quite happily. The other half I just happened to reassemble that way and I'm sure they'd be fine either way.

Re: Ideas for a 1040STF with a socket on the wrong side?

I am starting to think it was for a variant of this: https://www.atarimagazines.com/startv5n7/at_speed.html AT Speed 286 chip Or one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vortex-AT-ONCE-rev-2-PC286-7-2MHz-PC-for-Amiga-500-Fully-Working/183655125951?hash=item2ac2b2d3bf:g:eowAAOSwpptcTGET:rk:1:pf:0

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

If the machine powers on, then personally I wouldn't touch the CPU, just leave it with the socket soldered on top. In the past it may have had some sort of accelerator board, or something like a Vortex ATOnce style of PC emulator board, there were all sorts of upgrades that clipped on top like that....

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

Looks like it has had a mod at some point as there is a drilled hole right where the RF lead would go.... I'd pay some consideration to the PSU when you open it up, particularly the condition of the caps, and you may wish to consider a set of replacements to get it nice and stable. I'd also advocat...

Re: Rev C070859-001 Rev2.0 Australia 1989

I might order the v2.3 accelerator and the 1.02/1.04 2 chip rom board [0131] to suit now. I am puzzled about the 1.04/2.06 bios option [0050]. Does the v2.3 accelerator which is conditional for this hack permit 2.06 on an stfm. I know complex hacks permit this but understand this bios was primarily...

Re: Amiga accelerators available as of Q1/2019?

I'm sure you're already aware of these guys IngoQ, https://icomp.de/shop-icomp/de/shop.html#filter=* and also here https://icomp.de/shop-icomp/de/shop.html#filter=* . Their wiki page and shop seem to be a bit contradictory as to what is in/out of stock, but the accelerators are supposedly new, albei...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

Just a later model IMHO. I have an STF too, and it's a big button model, best thing to do is have a look at the mainboard revision, it may have a data on it, and you can then see what type/revision it is. Also get sysinfo.prg run on it so you can see what version of TOS it has plus all the other use...
