I'll get one of those carbon pens today! I have some traces to fix up like this on an STE board. Nice job, sir!

Thanks, @rubber_jonnie
I got mine from Amazon, under a tenner and worth every penny! Hope you can fix your traces as well, post progress please :)

Re: Installing FreeMint

@czietz thanks for all that info, I will test with the latest version simply unzipped on the real MSTE, I hadn't seen about the GEMDOS thing, I'll bear it in mind if I try it again on Hatari.

I hope I can retest within the hour!

I'm using HDDRIVER 11 by the way.

Installing FreeMint

I've decided to have a go at installing FreeMint on my MSTE but run into a problem, so wondering if anybody here had any experience and advice to offer. I've followed the guide here all the way through: https://sites.google.com/site/probehouse/mint-os-for-atari/installing-mint only for the latest ve...

Re: Stuff and Things.

As some of you may know, I recently became the proud owner of a lovely MSTE. Apart from some slight case discolouration, it's in truly great condition and came along with a factory fit 1.44MB FDD too. I've also added an FPU, though I've yet to find anything that uses it! One minor problem reared it'...

Re: Atari STE - Issues with power connector (J302)

STe should boot just fine without 12V. STe floppies used in STes don't use it, and even if you'd cut it completely off from the PSU, just the composite video/TV out would be non-functional. Quite right, there ins't much that needs 12v, and 12v is definitely not required to boot. When I was first ge...

Re: Atari STE - Issues with power connector (J302)

No, the 5v is fed from the track you can see coming from the main power connector on the top of the board so leave that alone. It sounds like there's something else going on. I've annotated your diagram to show the position of the feeds from the main PSU connector. Red is 5v, the leftmost two pins. ...

Re: Stuff and Things.

What type 74 serries chips are you going to use? I know that the Lotherek version uses HC varients, which may be the issue when the rest of the system is LS or S logic. I know they're supposed to be signal compatible, for certain values of compatible. The HC varients are also slightly slower than L...

Re: Stuff and Things.

Ya, I still have the bare board but the netusbee is really a pig in the poke. Works great in some machines and stops others from booting. :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: I'm a little further ahead then.... IMG_20190818_213819.jpg I should probably put it under the microscope and check for shorts!!
