GGLABS A2SCSI - Clone of APPLE SCSI CARD 607-0291 rev. C

 

I have Enhanced Apple IIe with Grappler+ in slot 1; SSC in slot 2; 5.25 disk controller in slot 6; A2SCSI in slot 4. Trying to boot ProDOS from 5.25 floppy.  

Finding the boot hangs whenever the A2SCI is installed, regardless of the state of the SCSI hard disk (on off connected disconnected).

 

Am not finding much documentation on this card and it's hard to run diags if the machine won't boot.  

Anyone have experience with this card?

 

Thanks,

 

Paul

The normal location for hard

The normal location for hard disk interface cards on the Apple II is Slot 7. The Apple SCSI Card can also be used in Slot 5.

A2SCSI

Thanks. Yes, I put it in slot 7, to give it a first shot at booting; just the "Apple //e" at the top of the screen, then nothing.

I tried slot 5, but results were no different than slot 4.  Moved to slot 4 for breathing room. The card is new; the drive is an unknown 80 MB CMS.

I understand that the gglabs

I understand that the gglabs SCSI card is basically a clone of the Apple rev C SCSI card with the improvement that it does term power.

You’ll need to format and partition it with something like the Apple II SCSI card Utility
