Been working on my Apple II europlus for a few months now and have fixed the blown PSU, replaced the fried CPU in the motherboard, repaired the broken keyboard and now it powers up to the [ prompt in basic and seems to run ok.
However, how does the disk II interface and drive normally operate ?
If I install the card (in slot #6) and connect up the disk drive, the computer hangs with Apple ][ but no [ prompt and the drive continually spins ?
Is it looking for a disk to boot from ? (I do not have any formatted or bootable disks yet, just some blank ones)
Read the manual but its hard to get an idea when I have never seen it work (was a BBC B owner in the day)
Cant get the reset key to work at the moment (tried the swtich in both positions), so cant enter the monitor which I suspect I will need ?
