So last weekend I snagged an Apple IIGS at a yard sale (yay!) and unfortunately it didn't come with a system disk.
What it did come with is:
- 5.25 floppy drive
- 3.5 floppy drive
- A Tour of Your Apple IIGS 3.5 floppy disk
I have tested pretty much everything but the 5.25 floppy drive with the Tour disk, but every tutorial I've tried to follow on creating a system disk seems to just result in a disk that gets spit out when the computer boots.
I'm pretty sure I have ROM 01 - at least that's what it says when it boots
I've used both CiderPress on Windows and the unix/mac os utility to make the system disks with a usb floppy.
I've tried the images found on apple's website (here) as well as others I found while googling.
So I'm kind of at a loss as to where to go now. The only remaining clue I have is that the Tour disk I'm fairly sure is a DD disk, versus the HD disks I'm working with, and the usb floppy drive I have can't read it (from what I understand it doesn't support it).
I did try to search the existing forum posts and nothing jumped out at me, so I'm hoping one of you guys might be able to provide some advice.
