Can someone help me understanding how the Apple //e DOS/PRODOS works when it comes to booting something?
I was tidying up my disk library today - I "certified" all my disks and I wanted to make a library from the DSK images on my Windows computer.
At some point I encountered "Lemonade stand" which would not work. I blamed a bad disk and spent some time until I realised the DSK file only contained the HELLO file and the LEMONADE.BAS file.
What I did was to write a DOS 3.3 disk using ADTPro and then I copied those two files on it: now it automatically boots to Lemonade Stand.
So my understanding is that the HELLO file is a sort of Autoexec.bat file as it contains this:
10 HOME 20 PRINT CHR$ (4);"RUN LEMONADE"
Is that a BASIC program which is automatically run at boot?
Could have I copied the DOS files instead? What files are required? And did it need to be DOS? Could it have been ProDOS?
Thanks for pointing me to the right direction!
